We recently completed a set of delivery crates for our local Farmers Market Drop Off. The service allows residents of Vero Beach, Palm Bay, Orchid Island, Sebastian, Hutchinson Island, and Fort Pierce to order farm, gourmet, and artisan products online during the week and have them delivered to their doorsteps (or available for pick up at Vero Beach Oceanside Farmers Market) Saturday.
The crates are 11” x 13” x 20” and are made of 100% repurposed pallet wood, hand-nailed together and strengthened with glue. Each is hand-stamped with the Farmers Market Drop Off logo on the sides; and with Vero Beach, FL, USA; and My Natural Playce / The Steinwalds inside. Each stamp is designed, built, hard-carved, and placed by our son, Auguste, who designs, builds and hand-carves all the stamps we use.
The first week they used them, they received this positive customer feedback: “The wooden crates are beautiful!….They’re a great step forward in dealing with the plastics problem and I admire your commitment to change.”
Some people have questions and fears related to using “treated lumber” for raised vegetable garden beds. We direct people to the following research studies and information sources to address their questions and concerns.
