Wicking Beds

Creating our new wicking bed POD

20 Feb , 2016  

We are grateful to Wine & Dine’m Catering for hosting a wicking bed pod behind their offices in Woollongabba.

These 8 self watering wicking beds are made from food grade IBC tanks.  We got the idea and instructions from our new friend Rob from Rob Bob’s Backyard Farming.

This project was created over 4 weekends.  (1) Receiving, cutting & washing tanks, (2) Painting, (3) Transport and assembly then (4) Planting.

The lovely Olivia joined us again along with Richard as our volunteers to help us plant in the seedlings on our last day.

Make sure you check out the great video that Richard made for us also.
