Susliving Tech Mentors Elmer and Martin are working with 15 students from School of the Holy Spirit in Kilkenny to create raised beds and vertical gardens.
This project will provide opportunities to grow a range of flowers, fruit and vegetables and also provide a visual screen in front of the bin and compost area.
How we did it
In this workshop we used timber and salvaged pallets to create a raised bed with wire climber frame. We mixed compost with soil and planted a range of flowers and shoots from a variety of flowers which the students had previously sown.
In the next workshop we will complete the pallet based vertical garden including making a trellis over the pallets on which to grow a variety of climbing plants.
