Growing Food and Community with the Grantham Gardeners
Our URBAN88 has been busy helping Carol and volunteers at the Sustainability Hub and Community Gardens at the Grantham Heritage Park in Seven Hills, Sydney. Carol took the time to share this fabulous feedback….
“I got to give my BucketBarrow a run today at the back of the community garden. We have been planting in loads of native and exotic perennials and covering the area with mulch. The BucketBarrow buckets make it so much easier to redistribute the mulch - no more awkwardly taking out handfuls to cover the planted out areas!”.
Carol is a horticulture student and self-described grower of “food, flowers and family”. She shares fabulous gardening advice and beautiful photography at @gardentogut.
Grantham Community Gardens is a place for people of all ages and abilities to work together, to form social connections and strengthen community. Volunteers are welcome, learn more at @granthamgardeners.

BucketBarrow Hits the Road this Summer!
Look out for our new (yet still very classic!) BucketBarrow ’54 Chevrolet on the road and at gardening events around Victoria this summer!
First stop was the Yarra Valley Plant Fair and Garden Expo
where despite challenging Spring weather over 1,700 visitors enjoyed discovering all the latest plant varieties and learning tips from industry experts.
Thank you to the many gardeners, DIYers and property owners who visited the BucketBarrow display – many of whom purchased their very own BucketBarrow. The Bucketbarrow Chev arrived at the Expo full of stock and headed home empty!
Look out for the BucketBarrow team at the State Rose and Garden Show on 9-10 November at the magnificent Victoria State Rose Garden where you can experience over 5,000 stunning blooms set amidst 6 acres of garden displays.
Stay tuned for updates on other events where you can meet the BucketBarrow team and discover our full product range this summer!
Making Harvest Time Easier at Tesorino Farm
Tesorino Farm in North Gidgegannup, Western Australia is owned by husband and wife team Dave and Alison, both experienced horticulturalists, who grow fresh seasonal vegetables and make delicious produce to sell direct to their customers.
Dave recently contacted the BucketBarrow team to share this harvest time update…
“The (asparagus) season is just getting going at the moment ... As the weather warms, we will be inundated with the spears up everywhere. It takes hours of work when in full swing. No more heaving a container along as you pick, with it getting heavier as you go. The BucketBarrow fits along the asparagus rows (unlike an ATV) and it's a breeze to use each bucket. It has saved a lot of back breaking work.”
We are grateful to Dave and Alison for making time to share how our URBAN88 narrow wheelbarrows with their BucketBarrow System of 4 strong Buckets and 1 x multi-purpose Scoop are making their asparagus harvesting season so much easier. Dave and Alison’s delicious produce is available weekly at the Farmers Market on Manning in Waterford, Western Australia. Market dates and information is available here
