Gravity fed worm castings/compost/weed tea watering system

Posted by Lyn Buffett on June 30, 2014 at 22:30 1 Comment

I have a big garden, that some would say is steep.   The house is at road level and the back garden slopes down from there.  I know the benefits of compost/weed teas, but distributing these with buckets or a watering can around my garden just isn't practical.  A few years ago I came up with a great solution....

August 2, 2014 from 10am to 4pm
With electricity prices rising, you are probably wondering how you can save money on your power bill.  The solution could be a simple domestic-sized gas generation system (bio-gas plant).  The system will cost you less than $100 to set up and from then on you can create an abundance of cooking gas for free.  It’s like solar, but without the hefty price tag.It is so easy to do that anyone can construct a simple, durable, inexpensive and leak-proof system in just a few hours, that should remain…See More
