Making Life on a Permaculture Property Easier
“Running a permaculture farm is hard work. We do as much as we can by hand. So when we see a useful tool that can help us save time and energy it really catches our eye. We recently got our hands on a new Aussie designed and owned product call the BucketBarrow. Not only is it the easiest barrow to move that I've ever used, the bucket system makes it so incredibly versatile that it has become one of our most used tools. Getting material into difficult places is now easy. Moving a variety of material and tools, simple!”.
It means a great deal to us to receive this amazing feedback from Brendan and the team at What The Green because these are people who truly live by their values. Their not for profit company manufactures quality, sustainable products like rice husk briquettes and coconut husk BBQ briquettes out of what would otherwise be waste materials. 100% of profits are then directed to building sustainable farms for communities in developing countries. On the home front they have developed a fabulous permaculture farm where they organically grow and raise a huge proportion of the food they eat and the materials they use. Learn more about What The Green here and follow their journey on Facebook or Instagram.

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

Introducing BucketBarrow to the Next Generation of Trade Professionals
Paul and the BucketBarrow UK Team recently joined forces with award winning construction and maintenance firm Hobson & Porter to introduce our wheelbarrow innovation to the next generation of trade, animal care and equestrian professionals at Hull College and Bishop Burton College. The visit provided an opportunity to highlight the efficiencies BucketBarrow technology offers students in both their current education and future professional work environments. Thank you Dave at Hobson & Porter, Darren at Hull College, Nick, Jeremy, Kim and Rob at Bishop Burton College for facilitating the visits and your warm welcome.
