Vertical gardening is not only the wave of the future, it’s here, now. We keep encountering numerous articles and stories of different vertical gardens, which allow gardeners to grow more food in less space and often involving less work as well.

Hey, we’re all for that, and we think this next vertical garden idea is super cool! It’s an edible garden house. The options for this are numerous. I can easily imagine this as a roadside vegetable stand. It would get more traffic than any other stand because people would be wanting to stop to see it.

EATHOUSE consists of a modular system of plain plastic crates. These crates are used in the agricultural industry to harvest, transport and exhibit fruit and vegetables in combination with a scaffold system.

With this system vertical green becomes accessible for everyone; you can make your own vegetable garden on the wall of your balcony or on the roof of your garden shed!

A house and garden to eat, that you are able to touch, smell, taste, seed, weed, and harvest! EATHOUSE is a house in a garden that attracts visitors with delicious vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers.

We want to seduce people and make them taste the edible garden and the edible house. EATHOUSE has a temporary character; it lasts a summer season. This is why all the materials used in EATHOUSE can be re-used for a new season of EATHOUSE at a different spot.

The novice gardener is often advised to suppress grand ambitions and begin on a realizable and manageable scale. When the window boxes overflow and the balcony’s twist of vines and foliage extend their reach and blur boundaries, one may soon be indulging in visions of dense vegetative sprawl. The spread of flowers, vegetables and herbs without a surface left bare.

Architects Marijke Bruinsma (de Stuurlui stedenbouw), Marjan van Capelle and Arjen de Groot have created a space that is all garden. An enticing and edible house brimming with peas, berries, basil, thyme, lavender and greens.

The garden shed was recently on display at The Gardens of Appeltern Festival in the Netherlands. Employing a scaffolding structure with simple vegetable crates, all materials are to be reused for the following growing season. Coming from all sides, the harvest is sure to be an inspiration for gardening enthusiasts and urban agriculturists.
