Looking for a DIY project?

Here’s a fun idea: build your very own vegetable garden box.

Making one from basic materials is easy and a great way for the family to work together. Consider it for your next weekend when you have time. You’ll be happy you did. Once build, this planter box can be used to grow veggies, herbs and just about anything you’d like, even if you live in a tight urban space. There’s nothing like a little garden-to-table freshness to amp up your next meal.

Loni Stark, author of the plans, tests out an almost finished planter box.

Loni Stark created her own planter box and decided to share her plans so you can enjoy the same result.

The planter box plans include everything you need to get started:

  • Materials list
  • Diagrams of the planter box and dimensions
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Downloadable PDF
