Edible Walls

PRESENTED BY


University of Technology, Sydney and the Powerhouse Museum

food wall 2

Come and see the future,  as city farming goes vertical with this high-rise harvest. Edible Walls is an installation which demonstrates what lies ahead for the future of city food. Housed in the Powerhouse Museum’s new cafe, the installation is verdant and vertical and showcases what you can grow, such as silverbeet, lettuce, beetroot, cucumbers, edible flowers, native salad greens, fruits – and even an integrated Aquaponics system combining silver perch and edible plants.

The benefits of the food wall concept are bountiful – great for our environment and health and teaches the next generation the ease of growing and harvesting your own food. It connects us with nature and provides practical and positive ways to engage with the natural environment while growing edibles in small urban spaces.

The project is a collaboration with the University of Technology Sydney, the Powerhouse Museum and some of Australia’s leading urban farming and greenwall practitioners.

If you want to learn more about edible walls and how to get one growing in your space come along to the Edible Walls talks and the City of Sydney’s Green Roofs and Walls forum at the Powerhouse Museum.
