Hi everyone! Today I take you on a tour of my urban permaculture kitchen garden and show you what I have growing here in Perth, Australia. My kitchen garden is my permaculture zone 1 and really close to the kitchen so it is convenient to grab what I need for dinners. My Kitchen garden is growing in pallet planters and pots which means I can maximise the sun and shade to grow successfully all year round.

Zone 1 Permaculture areas
My kitchen garden is located right outside my kitchen window so it’s very close and convenient which is key! Zone 1 permaculture areas are ones that are frequently used or pathways on the way to frequently used areas. If you can see your kitchen garden, you are more likely to utilise it and give it the love and care needed to make it thrive. This is where pots and containers can be a great option as you can create kitchen gardens in your outdoor living areas, balcony, windowsill or patio. I grow lots of herbs, chillies, edible flowers and greens in my kitchen garden that I can easily pick to add to salads and meals as needed.
Pallet Planter Boxes for Urban Gardening
I am passionate about growing as much of my own food as I can and building my own urban permaculture homestead. These pallet planter boxes help me grow more food on my suburban block and provide so much fresh homegrown food. Urban gardening means trying to find creative ways to best utilise the space available to grow food. These DIY pallet planters can be made with recycled pallets that are often available for free. Use heat-treated pallets and not ones chemically treated. Make sure you do your own research.
Creating a cheap and efficient way to grow your own veggies and start a kitchen garden. Adding wheels means you can use them on concreted or paved areas and push them in and out of the sun/shade/rain as required. Perfect for growing in the heat of summer in Perth, Australia! You do not need to have the “perfect” place to grow food it is important to get to know your surroundings and just start by growing a few things. It’s all part of the journey and you will continue to learn and develop along with your garden. I hope you enjoy this video and get inspired to grow more of your own food.
