As part of the Growing Together Project Friends of the Earth Malta hosted a Crop Growing Workshop Series. This video toolkit will take you through steps of making your own raised beds, preparing the soil and taking care or your crops! (Once you’ve got your raised beds sorted, check out how to plant in raised beds, and how to create a hydroponics system using upcycled material.)
This session was run by Pallet 42, a young start-up that up-cycles reclaimed pallet wood to create unique furniture pieces that would otherwise end up being thrown away.
We had the pleasure of learning how to strip a wooden pallet to its frame and build it up again to make four raised beds for our Green Resource Centre in Floriana. We also slapped some wheels onto the raised beds so that we can move them about according to the season.
