Building a Mobile Indoor Raised Bed & Prepping for Indoor Gardening in a Grow Tent | Zone 5

Organic gardening doesn’t stop as we head into winter. Here at Guten Yardening, we want to continue growing as much food as we possibly can. In order for that to happen, we need to maximize the growing potential in our grow tent.

One way we are doing that is by building a 3×3 raised bed, which will give us 9 square feet of exceptional planting space.

This raised bed is built out of 2x4x8 studs, and cedar fence posts. The total cost for this bed, including casters and screws is around $65 USD.

In addition to the wood, we also added some 45mil food safe pond liner, in order to ensure there wouldn’t be any molding or rotting of the wood. This should ensure that our raised bed lasts for many years to come.

We filled the raised bed with a mixture of peat moss, vermiculite, perlite, organic potting mix, worm castings from our vermiculture setup, egg shells, and organic fertilizer.

This mix has excellent draining and water retention, so we are sure that the foot we plant in here is going to enjoy its growing environment.

Thanks for watching.

    Have your red wigglers shrank in size since the fall started? Mine were decent size all year and when I took them in before the frost I noticed most of them were significantly smaller than before. Any insight?

    Glad you added casters!

    Great job! Love the indoor raised bed idea. It is always great to be able to keep producing throughout the winter. How big is your grow tent? We were thinking about getting one.

    Best video I’ve seen on building a tall raised bed. Does a great job laying out the specifics involved and giving the reasoning behind your choices. The end result looks fantastic and seems very sturdy. Thinking I might have to build one of these for my back patio garden. It would be a great place to propagate my plant cuttings. Thanks for sharing! – Kim

    Excellent tutorial. I tried to buy some lumber to increase my raised beds and noticed the price increase! Worm casting is the tip of the iceberg. Super Nice, Blessings

    Do you need to add some drain to send out the extra water?
