The Great Crate is an impressive living sculpture made up of 25,000 edible plants. Comprised of 256 green crates, it looks almost as though it were one gigantic carton. A beautiful collaborate effort between studios and individuals alike, including but not limited to design studio Telly Theodore & Associates, architect Andy Macdonald, and curator Danella Bennett, The Great Crate also involved the community. Locals were asked to grow plants from distributed seeds, which then formed part of the giant green cube

Commissioned for the City of Sydney’s Art & About public art festival and developed by Plus One, The Great Crate was recently installed at Green Square rail station. When the festival came to a close, locals were invited to take a container for their own personal use.
