I'm presenting at the Sustainability Festival at Melbourne's Federation Square. It's a filthy hot day but before my talk I want to visit a new community garden that's been installed on the Federation roof top car park.
This 7 year old slab of unused concrete has been converted into a thriving veggie patch by the blokes from The Little Veggie Patch Company.
After much bureaucratic wrangling, they have the space for 12 months for 140 do-it-yourself veggie boxes.
Members of the public can rent or buy boxes for the year ....
... and can choose from a seasonal mix of seeds to plant.
And experts are on hand throughout the week to give you advice about what and how to plant.
There's also an array of planting systems if you want to set up your own veggie patch but are squeezed for space.
All the restaurants and cafes at Federation Square have their own box so they can grow ingredients for their daily menus.
Inspirational, huh? For more details contact The Little Veggie Patch.
