Vertical garden bed
On Tuesday October 7, Mrs Liz Keck (Activities Officer, Bunnings Waurn Ponds), joined Mr Pillai’s Year 9 Planet Green class, to commence the construction of a Vertical Herb Garden bed (sponsored by Bunnings), at Westcourt. As participants of Planet Ark’s Tree Day project, the vertical garden bed was our third project, following a “refresh” of our Sustainable water station/garden bed and the implementation of an Aquaponics tank. The project proved to be more challenging than first thought and ended up taking on quite a different form in the end.
On completion, the herb garden will comprise of 32 recycled plastic bottle planter boxes, suspended vertically on wire, all encased in a merbau timber frame.
