This mobile vegetable garden includes a built-in worm farm to help fertilise the plants.

The project

 

I built this recycled pallet timber planter on wheels as a gift for Mother's Day. I used weed matting to keep the soil in place while still allowing it to breathe and not get waterlogged.

 

I even included a worm farm in the middle using 150mm PVC pipe with lots of small holes drilled into it. I put a cap on top and it was done. The worm farm fertilises the garden while disposing of vegetable waste.

 

How to build a portable planter

 

A portable planter allows you to move succulents and flowers to the best locations in the garden, or bring herbs into the kitchen while cooking. Check out this step-by-step guide to build a portable planter.

 

How to create an in-ground worm farm

 

In-ground worm farms turn food waste into rich organic fertiliser that your garden will love. They’re low-maintenance, blend into your garden and you can use pots you already own. See How to create an in-ground worm farm.

Hello @mich1972

 

Let me tag @Glenc to make sure that they are made aware of your question and kind words. I've seen this technique on youtube and am curious to see how it's going. It would have been interesting to see the difference in plant growth if they had a mobile garden bed without the built-in worm farm.
