    Just an FYI, that was a Re-Store. They are simply selling donated goods to support the work they do. Habitat helps people build a home. It is great. Each home owner puts sweat equity as well as money into their new home and items and labor gets donated. Then that homeowner will help someone else in the Habitat program by volunteering to help work on their home. I got friends who built a home with them. Outstanding organization. Their website explains it all.

    I suggest you tie burlap to the backside of this fencing to make long pockets – I use garden wire to "sew" the burlap or canvas( old drop cloths) to the wire making rows. Then add mulch /composted soil before you place your plant in the hole. I angle the pots in a bit ( the biodegradable ones- the plastic ones I take the plants out). I have my fencing staked to the ground with fence posts to support the weight of everything. Then add an old hose rigged as drip system at the top back

    that's what Habitat for Humanity has to show people to help them build a better life ? You're kidding, right ? That's like the single most pathetic piece of work I have ever seen.

    They are somehow a part of the Welfare system ?

    If that's all good tax money is getting for people who want a "hand up" not a "hand out" are plants that look like that, no wonder they have to have food stamps !

    More caseworkers needing their azz kicked if ya ask me ! Sorry for the tude but WOW that's BAD!

    Id like to try this with the pots hooked up to drip lines. Maybe just use gravel or other hydroponic medium too.
