Ro and Rishi from localblu explain how to build a self-watering container using two 5-gallon buckets, a wicking basket, a pipe, and soil. It’s easy to make and maintain – a great way for anyone to get started with growing their own food!
James and Rishi from TheGrowingHome.net demonstrate how to make Biochar at home. Biochar is a nutrient-infused charcoal that is used as a soil amendment. The biochar technique was developed by the pre-Columbian cultures of the Amazon. It is said to be the reason for the incredible soil fertility of the Amazon Basin.
