Australian Made Wicking Beds
Biofilta is an Australia-owned company that manufactures wicking garden beds using state-of-the-art design and technology. The product range is headed by our growing Foodcube product range.
Biofilta began its journey designing and constructing stormwater harvesting systems in iconic locations around Melbourne such as Fitzroy Gardens, Birrarung Marr and the Melbourne's Main OutFall Sewer (MOS). These systems collect runoff rainwater in large underground tanks, pump the water through a series of physical and biological filters and then re-purposes the water for irrigation of parks and green spaces.
Now Biofilta has turned its focus to food
Biofilta believes wherever you live (or work) it's possible to make food growing easier and accessible to all. That's why Biofilta has designed state-of-the-art modular wicking garden systems to improve water-efficiency, minimise labour requirements and maximise food growing outcomes.
Biofilta wicking garden systems can turn 'food miles' into metres, maximise composting opportunities, reduce waste output and increase food security for individuals, families and communities.
