pathway leads to washing line, raised vege gardens and chook house
The distinctive blue pallets on loan from Chep ensured the pallet pavilion became an icon landmark in Christchurch
Corner of Durham Street North and Kilmore Street after an earthquake damaged hotel was demolished and levelled.
Concrete platforms borrowed from a nearby demolished building made the foundation for the pallet pavilion walls. In the foreground are crates and crates of donated plants.
The shipping pallets were drilled with at least two holes so they could be threaded onto vertical rebar and clamped into position.
From a sheltered corner of the site, volunteers repotted hundreds of donated plants into smaller square pots that could slot into the Pallet Pavilion walls.
One of four oak trees in it's specially made pallet box and being positioned before the Pallet Pavilion floor was installed.
