VEGGIE PATCH BIO
The Veggie Patch is a collaboration between a design studio, TMOD and a restaurant Yulli’s, creating accessible restaurant quality food with an innovative artistic edge.
All owners of the Veggie patch live and work within the boundaries of the City of Sydney council and have resided our whole lives in Sydney.
The Veggie Patch is devoted to providing high quality vegetarian food using seasonal produce sourced from local growers. The enterprise’s whole foods philosophy extends on the ‘paddock to plate’ movement ensuring the delivery of minimally processed, full flavoured cuisine aimed at reconnecting growers with diners. The van’s artwork resembles a farm barn house surrounded by a veggie patch and is a nod to this idea.
The team behind The Veggie Patch is determined to keep its environmental impact to an absolute minimum, and hope to continually discover new and innovative ways of achieving this. All waste produced including packaging is compostable, solar panels power the cooking, and the van itself runs on recycled vegetable oil.
TMOD output experiential Australian design. Led by multidisciplinary artists Georgie Swift and Milenka Osen, TMOD’s interactive stationary and jewellery stories have transfixed a cult following. TMOD was established as a vehicle to explore design boundaries and challenge expectations of functionality and purpose. Blending materials and processes, TMOD’s manifesto is to design without constraints. Across graphic, fashion and product design they celebrate the unexpected and consider the experience of every design outing. Their animated products trigger emotions, transport feelings and create memories.
Yulli’s opened in August 2008 as a bar and restaurant on Crown St, Surry Hills. The menu is all vegetarian and the drinks list features over 30 NSW handcrafted microbrewery brewed beers and an extensive range of Australian wines with a particular focus on NSW Vineyards. Yulli’s aim is to provide an environment that is an extension of our home; serving high quality food and drinks in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
