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.

isn't the plastic (the chemicals) a bit dangerous and toxic? considering it
will be in the sun. Thanks!

Im just pondering about rot root when implementing this in a tropical
environment but the irrigation method. Won't the top bottle be too wet and
the bottom bottle be too dry??? your thoughts

just had that "why didn't I think of that" moment that I'm sure is very
common for people watching your videos. This is brilliant.
Wouldn't it be fun to set up something like this taking advantage of the
natural spout design of the upside-down bottle, shunting it into a water
conduit of some sort, then sending the runoff over to a swirl filter of
some sort where you could then pull clean, nutrient-rich water to dump
right back in to the top? It would cost a few feet of height, but that
shouldn't be a huge problem. I am sure most gardeners are happy to have
most of the deep bending down tasks relegated to short, less constant
duties... I have a problem with the cochlea in my left ear that makes me
highly susceptible to dizziness when bending down.
I'm trying to figure out a quick and easy way to build a simple reservoir
and pump system. With a 1mm hole in those drip buckets, I'd be worried
With a heavily stacked system, you could almost pre-charge the system with
a load of water, wait a few minutes, then fill your water supply back up
and it would water itself for a few cycles. Great for urbanites.
If only all those people sitting around on welfare could realize what they
could be doing with all those Coke bottles, what that would mean for their
diet, their energy, their food bills, their sense of accomplishment, their
My junkie sister has a boyfriend who loves to say he lives off the grid.
The extent of his green thumbery involves growing pot and opium poppies
because Welfare already pays for all his other drugs, food and rent. And
constantly they complain about their hardships while she is 75lbs
overweight, smokes a pack a day, drinks like a fish and chugs 3 protein
shakes and 4 energy drinks every single day.
If they did this instead, they'd be slimmer, healthier and would have a
daily routine (that didn't involve panhandling and dumpster diving) too!

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.

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.

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.

Just love seeing stuff like this. Makes me want to find a source of used 2

The problem I'm having with my bottle towers is that the one on top that is
the reservoir? the hole clogs every single day. I'm finding that it works
better to forget the hole and adjust the tightness of the cap to allow
water to leak out.

Liked! Subscribed! Had me at 'Hello'' Wish I could have shared more green
experience with the Old Man. Has 'soil magic properties' ? (no it does
not). The World itself changes from taking notice. Capture the best moments
with a word, vision and story. Bang Big! Your moment immortal, Stranger and
YouTube Good Guy.
Failed heaps of times to garden purpose, second use, drink plastic
bottles'. I mist
the support structure idea. The system needs the scale to 'self support' as
a larger effective pot size within all containers. Also my paranoid friend
said that YouTube was hiding your Channel from me. Do not want to hear that

WOW, Wow, wow. This is the solution to keeping my destructive neighbors
from poisoning my garden. I have an area that get lots of light and heat
that they can't access. Thank you, and blessings too. :)
