Oh, how I can’t wait to build a strawberry planter this spring! If you have the tools on hand, this whole project could literally cost you nothing!

There are many places you can find pallets for free. Just make sure they are heat-treated (HT) and safe to use.

If you don’t have the tools on hand, you can get them fairly cheaply at Lowes, Home Depot or Amazon.

– A suitable pallet (make sure it’s heat-treated and safe)
– A handsaw or jigsaw
– Electric drill or hammer
– Two sizes of screws and nails – approx. lengths 4 cm (1-1/2″) and 8cm (3″)

The reason I think you should grow strawberries in a planter is simple, It’s raised off the ground where rabbits and critters can steal your crop, its easier to manage and you actually get more strawberries this way, the soil is very loose and aerated and plenty of gaps, etc to grow out of. Check out how to make one…

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
