Made this elevated herb gardening bin for a client. Made out of pressure treated lumber to resist rot & decay, construction adhesive, and exterior wood screws. Boards on the bottom are spaced slightly apart for drainage.

You should never use pressure treated lumber for planters that contain plants for consumption. Proven to lead to cancers.

Wrong decade (almost century) friend. They stopped using anything even considered harmful for growing in and for consumption back in 2003. Perfectly safe today.

You are referring to CCA which was stopped in 2003. Today they use either ACQ, or MCQ. If you read the MSDS you will find that they strongly advise against use in areas which could contaminate food. Sorry a decade ago they chose to eliminate arsenic, but they added other chemicals which are safer but not safe. May want to research further….
