Automatic Watering Part II Global Buckets or Earthbox®

February 22, 2011 by Mario  
Filed under Gardening Tips It’s easy to build and grow using the two 5-gallon bucket container growing system! Reduce global hunger with a low cost and simple way of growing food. This foolproof method of gardening is very similar to the excellent Earthbox® method. Like the Earthbox system, Global Buckets: 1) 80% reduction in water usage 2) 100% reduction in weeds 3) Takes very little time or effort. 4) No place to plant a garden? Great! This system works excellent on concrete…like on a rooftop in Calcutta. Unlike the Earthbox method, Global Buckets uses locally sourced free or low cost materials, ideal for developing nations.

    couldnt you connect all the buckets just by drilling a hole in the bottom and runiing a hose from the bottom of the bucket straight to the next bucket

    Absolutely first class! Genious! I hope to add this system to my Earthbox Garden next season. Which I also plan to expand. Is there a limit as to how many buckets can be added to the system? Thanks for the info!
