Here is the video DIY grow bags for balcony vegetable gardening.

I think shallow pool grow bag gardens are ideal for balconies and roof tops too if they can be made lightweight. Here is my idea for making free DIY lightweight gardens. I say free as the plastic bottles and plastic bags can be recycled materials, you will only need small strips of scrap wood or PVC to make the shallow frames for the pools.
I hope this idea works and it spreads so people everywhere that have flat roofs and permission and access to them can grow some of their own food for free.

Please check out my other videos, I have over 200, I list some of the garden related ones below. I try to add more videos every week and I try to have videos that are not commonly done on youtube..

    Won't the lightness of the bags make them blow over or off the roof entirely in strong winds? May need anchoring system.?
