It is made of collapsible pallet edge based boxes, and a few other items to create sub-irrigated garden systems. No, I had never done this before but I felt compelled to get involved with something important and built it. I learned how to use Sketchup and first created a 3D model of my design.

The Garden of Destiny Photos
These are my personal links regarding this project for growing season 2016 and my first sub-irrigated, raised-bed planters, (all nine of them).
- PROEFtuin Delft- General Photos
- My Garden Fresh Meals
- Google presentation – when I first got inspired to create this garden, I put together a presentation of my interests.
- Garden Planning App – Zukeeni – highly recommend
- Sustainable Seed Co. – I was overzealous and imported my seeds from Cali. Huge carbon footprint guilt afterwards so I will have to go closer to home next time. As far as an amazing company, they are pretty much on point in every way.
- Warentuin.nl – where I got my pond liner, and a few other things. They were above and beyond excellent and helpful.
- Pallet-handel.nl – just tell them you want the same as Lucy’s Garden of Destiny and they will definitely know.
- Joosten Kunststoffen – closest place to buy drainage tubes. These you can get anywhere.
