Space to garden is in short supply when you live in an apartment. A friend was getting rid of some wooden pallet crates, so we took the opportunity to set up a planter box in a car space.
Following the steps suggested by Gardening Australia, we filled the crates with organic materials. We used what we had, so the woodchip layer was sawdust, donated by a friend who turns wood as a hobby. Grass clippings came from the local park, given we don’t have a lawn ourselves! We were lucky to be gifted some left over pea straw as well as blood and bone from a friend who was moving. The only things we had to buy were compost and manure.
The construction was a group affair, even the smallest members of our apartment block helped out! Here’s hoping we get to grow many more vegies now 🙂
