What: At this visit to the Brookfield Community Garden we will be shown how to easily transform a wooden pallet into a flower planter to hang from walls or railings. When: Saturday 4th of July 2015, 12 pm to 4 pm (approximately). Where: Brookfield Community Garden, Jobstown, Tallaght, South Dublin. Parking is available at the Sundale Shopping Centre, just off the Fortunestown Roundabout (southern end of Brookfield Road). Brookfield Community Garden is accessed along a laneway off Brookfield Road, next to the school.

Overview: The 4th of July Green Communities Event will feature a vertical pallet planter workshop at the Brookfield Community Garden, Jobstown, Tallaght, South Dublin, on Saturday the 4th of July. Many shops and businesses often find themselves with a pile of pallets accumulating in their store yards and are often at a loss as to what to do with them. Rather than discard to landfill, dump, or burn on bonfires, we will be training community groups how to rescue old pallets and recycle them in to beneficial vertical planters. By lining with landscaping material and planting with native wildflowers we can convert waste into a beneficial object that greatly improves the look of urban concrete walls and palisade fencing.
