Our latest project here on the homestead.....Herb boxes. We have been using broken wood pallets to build herb boxes. They work great for the project and they are FREE ( my favorite price) Another very good reason to use wood pallets is what we really like to teach around here is Reusing something instead of just throwing it away. Part of the 3 R's Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The little children have a cute little song they like to sing about the 3 R's.
