This video shows the efficiency and sustainability of a bottle tower garden. They can be installed against the wall of a house or along a hedge or a fence. The number of bottle towers has to be adapted for providing food security for the family all year long and year after year. It is a method applicable anywhere on earth, both in rural and in urban areas, e;g. on a balcony. It can be applied at the lowest cost to alleviate malnutrition and hunger.

Imagine using plastic bottles that never decay in a landfill and using them
as free planters to feed people. The man deserves an award. Thank you so
much for such a well presented idea. I will use this for my small garden.

Spring is around the corner and I hope everyone is beginning to plan their
organic gardens for the coming season. Even if your space is very limited
you can grow a fabulous vertical garden for herbs and other smaller plants.
This method is great for growing and harvesting seeds, to ensure you and
your family have seed stock for the future. Be safe my friends and remember
unity is our best weapon, share knowledge and spread the word.

An effective and efficient way of people growing their own food even if
they live in apartments and don't have back yards.Too busy with work to
lease patches of land for that purpose, the areas available for renting and
using it as you would at your home, offering a large enough area for either
direct planting on ground or in a greenhouse.

Did you use seeds for these plant towers or small seedlings?

Nobody mentions that it is only good for one season, if that. The plastic
decomposes fast. And think of all the pop that someone has to drink in the

I love this idea! But It needs just a little more directions. Where and
how do you cut the holes for the seeds and plants. How do you water it? How

I've been researching tower gardens for a small commercial strawberry
application for some time. There are plenty of better looking systems out
there, but they all cost a LOT more. This system is simple, economical and
it works. The one modification I am going to suggest is painting the
bottles white to reduce heat in the soil before the leaves get big enough
to shade the bottles. Other than that, I'm investing a lot of time and
money into this very shortly - 4-6 weeks. I plan to use a 2x4x8 board,
pressure treated, sunk about 3 feet into the ground and 2 towers of bottles
on the pole with 5 or six plant spaces for strawberry plants. no or minimal
weeding, easy to set up a timer on a drip irrigation system. Not going to
do a you pick, everything will be me or staff. Yes it doesn't look as
pretty as the commercial towers for $100 plus each, but this can be made
under $5 a tower and from everything i see should work just as well. as for
bottle degradation, i plan to replace the bottles in 3-4 years as the life
of the plants die, so that's no big deal if they do deteriorate, if not i
recycle them. I don't think they will, plastic pop bottles last 100s of
years. it's the milk jugs that break down. THANK YOU for the video. I
really appreciate it as there are very few other videos out there on tower
pop bottle gardens. VERY IMPRESSED.

Dirty kitchen sink water without heavy food debris works is great for
plants. If you are worried about lack of acidity put a dab of white
vinegar in your dirty kitchen sink water, I have found the soap to not
affect the plants (just dont use bleach or antibacterial soap) Plants like
dirty kitchen sink water.. ! great plant food.

this is an amazing idea! I just moved into a very small space and I think
this would work for me. The music in this video is pretty hilarious too!

I am very amazed by your efforts. I live in a high dessert area. I am
curious are the top bottles full of water? do you harvest from the bottom
up? and one more thing, did you cut the bottom off each bottle or just poke
holes in them to drain water down? also do you have insect issues? i have
seen the tomato in the bucket before and I am glad to see your lovely
garden thankyou for sharing
