How To Build DIY Vertical Barrel Planters

I believe for many folks, vertical gardening is the way forward. It is the only way people with limited space can get anywhere near growing enough food for their families. Sure, this is not going to be of much interest if you live on a nice homestead with several acres of space for growing crops, but the fact remains that most of us don’t have enough land to grow enough food to feed our families…
These vertical barrel planters are easy to build (create a template for the cuts if you are making several!) and you could grow a huge amount of food in a small space with several of these. Personally I would only use food-grade barrels, but barrels like these (and smaller) can be acquired from local factories, fast food joints and bakeries etc. I am sure they can be purchased on eBay etc as well. Watch the video to see how they are made and how they work.
