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 r.rowe@sgaonline.org.au 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.
