Looking to create a lively garden atmosphere with minimal effort and maximum gain? The Glowpear Urban Garden is a range of planters that grow edible produce and stunning foliage. See how they enhanced Melbourne local icon, Verandah Café.
Since its beginning in 1843, the story of Collins Street Baptist Church, the oldest Baptist church in Victoria, has been entwined with the story of Melbourne. Located partway between the historic Town Hall and State Parliament, the church sits at Melbourne’s cultural, political and spiritual heart.
For close to a decade, Collins Street Baptist has hosted the Verandah Café on the steps of the historic church building. As well as serving great coffee, the Verandah offers a place of welcome, rest and conversation, and a greenspace in the heart of Melbourne.
Three Glowpear Café Planters and six Urban Gardens were specified to create a tranquil city garden with a mix of edible and decorative plants. There are plans to use these culinary plants for the wider church food programs in the future.
The Urban Garden planter provides enough space to grow veggie crops or flower beds but is compact enough to fit into small spaces. The Café Planter is made with beautiful Accoya Pine and has all the advantages of Glowpear’s classic Urban Garden but on a larger scale. Both are portable and are ideally suited to commercial environments where a mobile solution is required, such as cafés, restaurants and stores. Both planters make great room dividers and can bring beautiful flora to liven up your space.
The planters include the following benefits:
Integrated self-watering system | Just top up the reservoir and your plants will take the water they need as they need it. Simple.
Water level indicator | So you can see if you need to water at a glance.
Sturdy, considered construction | Made of injection-moulded HDPE, which is UV and corrosion resistant, BPA-free, food-safe and recyclable.
Mobile and secure | Easy to wheel around and securely stays in position. Move it to take advantage of the sun, or wheel indoors at night – whatever you and your plants prefer.
Raised design | You can pick, prune and water your garden without having to bend over.
