Learning to Craft Custom Raised Beds out of Upcycled Wood!

This month, we invited our friend, Anders, a master carpenter to join us for our FREE Community Workshop to teach an introduction to carpentry for urban gardens. We worked together to design and build our own customized raised bed. This bed was made from a pile of wood which had been accumulating on the roof for the past several years. We were able to turn "trash," into "treasure!"

Everyone was able to acquire hands-on experience with power tools to construct the bed from start to finish! We learned basic carpentry skills, and got acquainted with various essential tools and their respective application in the construction process.

Thank you Anders!

The finished product!
