The Pallet Planter project was born to provide a low cost of entry into urban farming.  It provides a cheap and readily available way for anyone to get ready to grow a multitude of varieties of plants.  The Pallet Planter provides three soil depths: 4, 10, and 18″ of soil for starting a  plant, medium sized herbs, and large food produce.  The Pallet Planter is currently undergoing rapid testing and development. Here is my process documentation.

The mapping then posits that if San Francisco is in a historical relationship with Angel Island, then Angel Island will be urbanized, and will be terraformed to deal with urban density like San Francisco.
