The making of Sow ‘n Sow’s Pallet Gardens

As promised, here are more photos of the creation of the ‘pallet gardens’, designed by Sow ‘n Sow for South Bank’s signature food and sustainability event, Regional Flavours. While building and planting in the glorious Brisbane sunshine continued, stencilling commenced and the first of the completed stacks were fork lifted into South Bank Parklands. All the pallet gardens are now in situ, along with our hanging installations in the Arbour. Be sure to check it out if you’re in this part of the world! Photos of the completed stacks will come soon, or have a look at our Facebook page which already has loads of photos.

Sow ‘n Sow will have a market stall at the event which is next weekend. We’re super excited to be there and will have a few lovely new products for sale. Regional Flavours is on from 10am – 5pm, Saturday the 30th and Sunday the 31st of July at South Bank.

 

There are 26 individual stacks of pallets, which took two weeks to construct, plant, stencil and install with the help of South Bank’s awesome horticulture and maintenance teams.

Using pallets makes transporting these beauties easy despite this stack weighing 700kg!

Gifts to Grow

Embedded and inspired by nature, Sow ’n Sow believe in purposeful gifting that doesn’t cost the planet.

From a small seed of an idea, Sow ’n Sow was dreamt up by founder Michelle Brady combining her love of gardening and flair for design in 2010.
