Shipping pallet + old soda bottles = vertical herb garden.
The project of using a shipping pallet to make an herb garden is one that I originally saw on Instructables.
The concept is that you water the top plant and it drains through to the plant below that and then to the plant below that.
London’s pop-up community garden known as Union Street Orchard, a project affiliated with the London Festival of Architecture, will close (as planned) on Sunday.
During the project’s dismantling, its reclaimed materials, including pallets and tires, will find new uses (the public’s invited to take part in creative reuse workshops), and the 80+ fruit trees growing among the piles of pallets will be sent to permanent new homes.
