Hey everyone! I have designed and built my own version of a vertical garden barrel planter. The major differences between mine and others is that I use a hugelkultur core and a passive watering clay "Olla". I have 40 planting pockets which turns 4 square feet into 22 square feet of garden space. I also built a rotating mechanism. Does anyone have any advice for improvements? Thanks!

Hey Permies! Is it true that Sepp Holzer's farm was reclassified as am amusement park? Also do you know what tax bracket he was in? I heard it was very high and then tried to fact check it for a friend and couldn't find any information. Thanks for your help!

I missed 1 video but I filled it with geotextile fabric and then sand up to the point of the milk crates. Then I added another layer of fabric across the top, the more sand, compost, logs and soil......I would have used only 1 large piece of geotextile fabric but they only make it 6 feet wide at my local store.

I hope you like my designs.....this is last year's design. This year I am attempting a water stockpiling, extra tall wicking planter.

I enclosed 3 of the cubes in a small greenhouse along the side of the house. They all got extremely dry because the clay I used could not weep water as intended and the hugelkultur core was too fresh to hold water well. I eventually put a drip line to each cube and then everything was great again. Here is a few photos but there will be many more this spring.
