Feed Your Family With
This Low-Space Food Project


First, you'll need these parts, or similar:

  • 2x 8 ft (2.44 m) of 2x2" (7x3cm) wood for the beams
  • 6x 6.5ft (1.8m) of 2x3" (7x3c cm) wood for the rafters
  • 3x 4ft (1.22m) of 2x3" (7x3c cm) wood for the vertical beams
  • 3x 4ft (1.22m) of 2x3" (7x3c cm) wood for the horizontal foot sleds
  • 6x 8ft (2.44m) of 2x3" (7x3c cm) for the purlins
  • 1x drill and drill bits
  • 1x handsaw
  • 1x 3" (8cm) hole saw drill bit
  • 1x box of 100 #9 2½" (6.35cm) countersinking exterior wood screws
  • 30x 4" (10cm) J-hook pipe hangers
  • 10x 10ft(3m) 4" (10cm) PVC pipes
  • 20x 4" (10cm) PVC cap fittings
  • Pencil, tape measure, spirit level, cutter, sandpaper, safety glasses and gloves

Then you'll want to build the wooden "A" frame which supports your structure.

To do this, you'll need to buy or cut three 6.5ft pieces of 2x3" wood, and three 4ft pieces of 2x3" wood, to make the "T" shaped pillars.

Using a butt joint, you must then screw the end of the long pieces to the middle of the short pieces' mid length, on one of the 3" sides, forming a T.

Now take the six 6.5ft pieces of 2x2" that will form the diagonal beams and cut them to fit at an angle.

Place these pieces against your main T frame, to ensure a good fit, before screwing them in.

Now it's time to connect your "A" frames together. To do this we'll need to link them using a rectangular frame.

This should be a straightforward case of screwing your 4ft and 8ft wooden pieces together at right angles, and then connecting them, through the middle of your "A" frame to form the rafters.

Just be sure to tighten your frame at the top for stability.

Then, tip your frame sideways, as it's time to add the shelves for your gardening tubes to rest on.

Here, I've also cut and added beams to either side of the structure, for extra support. This is advised, but not mandatory.

This is what you structure should look like at the end.

But first, we need to attach your J-hook pipe hangers. Screwing them in, like we display in the video.

Next, you'll need to add your PVC pipes.

To do this you'll first need to draw a straight line across each of these lengthways.

Next, mark a point on this line starting 10" from one end of each of the pipes. Then mark thirteen more points along this line leaving 7" between them.

Take a drill and, using a 3" hole saw drill bit, use these marks to drill your holes.

Repeat this step for each of your pipes and sand down any burrs that might damage your crops later.

Next, take the 4" PVC cap fittings and fix them to the ends of the PVC pipes.

Here we've used glue, but you can also use cement and primer for a tighter fit.

You can now hang your pipes onto the wood frame and fill them with potting soil to start your garden. No bending or stretching needed.

Perfect for small spaces, like a balcony, growing indoors or on barren ground, like a concrete driveway or lot.

This super-handy project is just one of many you'll find in 'Survival Sanctuary'.
