We do not use reclaimed timber and wood from pallets, as many are treated to conform with international shipping laws. Some of those treatments contain poisonous chemicals like Arsenic (Arsenic is a known human carcinogen and is acutely toxic), a poison that you might end up eating, should you grow herbs or veggies.

The wood we use is uncontaminated, natural, rough sawn timber from sustainable forests in the Cape. Our planter boxes are certified 100% organic.
