o2 Victorian management team member Jo Szczepanska has picked up a prestigious Premiers Design Award for her magnificent ‘VeggiePatch’ under the category of Self-initiated Industrial/Product Design. Wow!

“The VeggiePatch is the result of a self-initiated brief aiming to bridge the gap between the concept of sustainability and the reality of food production. The project aims to: invite individuals to re-connect with food and nature, raise awareness of and combat waste from the kitchen, stimulate a rediscovery of the pleasure of slow food and food cultivation and increase the self-sufficiency and sustainability of the modern household.
