The Murraylands Community Men’s Shed has been building timber wicking beds using the WaterUps system since October 2020. Their latest venture has been to build 24 1.6m x 0.8m wicking beds as part of the redevelopment of the Murray Bridge High School.

A lot of timber had to be put through the thicknessor to bring it down to size
All timber cut to size and pre-drilled
The next stage was to fabricate each layer of the garden beds prior to delivery for the final part of construction
