HI.Has anyone here heard or seen self sustained raised garden beds made using I.B.C Plastic Pods/Totes?I am a new member and have heard about this being done in Aussie.I have 4 of these pods and want to put them to good use instead of getting rid of them.Regards Derek.
Hi Derek (@decca),
Looks like a clever set-up. Thanks for joining in the discussion. I hope Workshop members have some useful suggestions for you.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the community. We're pleased you could join us and look forward to reading about more of your projects and plans. Feel free to post whenever you need a hand or have a new project to share.
Are you planning on setting up an aquaponics system or just using the containers as more traditional garden beds @decca?

Sophie Thomson featured IBCs cut in half and adapted to make raised garden beds recently. See http://www.abc.net.au/gardening/factsheets/wicking-works/9652718
