Allied Feeds produced pellets, mash and cubes of stock feed in a large industrial complex along the foreshore of the Parramatta River – the cluster of heavy industry the flourished during the 20thC. The river became heavily contaminated with an array of poisonous dioxins that remain in the river silt today despite massive remediation and the transformation along the riverbanks from heavy industry to residential developments and parklands.

Five giant sandstone sacks of grain recall Allied Feeds, create an interactive edge of the planted area, and provide seating for the public.
