By KRIS DANDO Now is the time to be planting your seedlings and Richie Moore from Poly Palace has the perfect place for them. The manager of Poly Palace -- where unwanted polystyrene becomes underfloor insulation -- has truck- loads'' of polystyrene containers available. The rectangle-shaped bins that fish are stored in at the supermarkets is perfect, he says, as vitamins in the fish residue adds nutrients to any potting mix. It's something we can all do; it's easy and doesn't cost anything. What could be more useful than growing vegetables? I've just been waiting for the time to get the word out there, and now we're in spring.'' Trash Palace and Mana Recovery run a school education programme that Mr Moore is keen to tap into. Gael Weir, who shows school groups through the landfill and Trash Palace, says there is real interest in vegetable growing at Porirua schools, and giving away the bins can add to that. It's another thing we can offer the schools. We're all for it.'' Mr Moore says all the bins are available for free, along with a plentiful number of egg cartons. Kids can set up their own garden, they can see how things really happen and grow just by watering it every so often.'' Poly Palace is opposite Trash Palace on Broken Hill Rd, just short of Spicer Landfill.
