I don't know what your region is, but I just , (day before yesterday) stumbled out of Columbia Winery with a 1/2 of case of Pinot Gris and two LARGE wooden boxes, that where used for turning wine bottles. Very solid construction.
In King county there is this handy dandy web site that a person can post wants and "I Have..." This is in an effort to reduce the landfill with reusable products. A lot of things are posted like,..."500 gallons of grey paint. Free. You pick up" But there are a lot of useful items for gardeners like 55 gallon blue drums for water catchment, or 5 gallon buckets or wooden storage containers.

Looking for ideas and experience with large containers that can be used =
in parking lots, brownfield, and other temporary urban sites to get =
demonstration gardens in on trial basis without having to do excavation =
and topsoil replacement. Bigger, deeper and more durable than kiddie =
swim pools with removal and relocation possibilities. Kind of a raised =
bed garden that could be moved if necessary to sprout another day. Stock =
tanks a posssibility.
Appreciate your experiences and thanks in advance,=20
