[papercreters] Papercrete for raised bed walls?

Has anyone use papercrete for creating raised beds for gardening?

How long would the blocks last being in continual contact with soil, at
least on the inside and bottoms of the beds?

I've been planning on building raised vegetable beds for years;
wondering what I would use to build the beds from. Papercrete seems to
be the perfect material. I plan on beds of around 24 inches high and 30
inches wide, with sprinkler pipes attached to the top inside edge, which
will also be used as a trolley track for a utility cart that rolls
across the length of the bed.

Any ideas as to the longevity of the block would be helpful.
