In the Urban environment, it is often very hard to find the SPACE to actually grow things… In my experience, most people would like to grow a few herbs, a tomato (or three) or even a full garden. But all they have is an apartment balcony or maybe just a very small suburban yard. Options are rather limited in these environments – Containers of various shapes and sizes are the most common.
A Pallet Garden is a new turn on the container, and it is one that is easy to DIY with found materials. All you need is an old wooden pallet, some landscape fabric, a staple gun, two bags of potting soil and a bunch of flowers (or whichever plants you choose. I found this project in the great book Small-Space Container Gardens by Fern Richardson and she has written a great step-by-step tutorial HERE.
In this 2-hour short class, we will build a Pallet Garden from Scratch and go over all the necessary details to repeat the process yourself in your own backyard or balcony.
