Funkbunny is a bad influence. Her bicycle riding, vegetable eating, recycling ways has encouraged me to grow my own vegetables. I don’t even like vegetables, and yet somehow since going to social sewing….I eat vegetarian meals. (Note- I’m usually that idiot that orders the vegetarian pasta dish…with chicken).
This was surprisingly affordable, with all the supplies sourced from Bulleen Art and Garden (BAAG) and delivered. We even paid for the timber to be pre-cut, which you might think is expensive, but compared to buying a drop-saw….not so bad.
8 x ecowood timber 2400mmx50mmx200mm
4 x timber supports
1 x screws and driver
1 cubic metre of vegie mix soil
and delivery…came to $275, including paying for labour to chop up all the timber in half.
The finished result is two 1.2m square beds, which are 40cm high. If you’re interested in the construction, we took detailed photos as we went. So now we’re growing our own vegetable, making clothes…we might need more bikes and to move to brunswick at this rate!
