Inspired by this palette garden, I set about repurposing a palette we had left over. I figured it was an easy way to start a mini-garden at my son's preschool that the kiddo's could help with. For the whole tutorial, please visit the original link here.
A few willing moms and I did the prep work, which included sanding, stapling and cutting and took about 2 hours.
We used heavy duty landscape fabric on the back to keep the dirt in place, added 2 cross bars of wood for support and then hauled the whole thing to school.

|And more potting soil. It took about 3+ large bags.|

|An assortment of ground covers, herbs, succulents, nasturtium and alyssum|
|And it's up!|
Make sure to secure the palette with wood screws from the back for safety. It is extremely heavy.
