No matter your location, if you have an outside area made of concrete, or have an inner city rooftop for a play area, a pallet garden is a great way to involve children in growing fruit, vegetables, herbs or flowers.
Creating a garden from a pallet is a quick and easy way to have a garden at your center, especially if you are in an urban area. Having the timber of the pallet facing upwards enables children to walk through the garden to reach the plants without damaging them. You could preface the building of the pallet garden by involving children in growing seeds, or purchasing seedlings from a garden shop. There is no need to dig up your grass, or alter your landscape in any way with a portable pallet garden. Think about the types of plants that will be of most use to your learning community. Consider which plants make good companion plants as well. Look at the seasons and discuss which plants grow in which seasons of the year. Have open meetings where you consider the amount of sunlight, wind, and rain your pallet garden will have. All of these factors can help you plan your garden best.
