Have you ever wanted to learn how to make things for your garden, how to use hand tools or how to reuse wooden pallets as a building material?  Following on from our successful Sustainable Building Materials Master Class we are pleased to be able to bring you a Construction Master Class on Building Veggie Growing Boxes from used / reclaimed  wooden pallets.

In this Construction Master Class where you will learn about:

  • How to source used timber pallets
  • Using hand tools safely
  • How to breakdown timber pallets to basic building materials
  • Veggie box design options
  • Build a Veggie Growing Box (approx. 1,100 mm square)

Workshop participants will be split into teams of 3 or 4 to build the Veggie Boxes.

If you are interested in buying one of the boxes made on the day, please email me at to register your interest.  Money raised by selling the boxes will go to the students of Templestowe College to buy additional resources for their permaculture / garden projects and unsold boxes will be integrated into the garden. If you want to buy a box, you will need to take it home on the day and they will be approx. 1,100 mm square.
