We have limited space – don’t gardens require a lot of room?
In-ground gardens do require a lot of room as well as a perfect environment for the plants as each plant will compete for resources. With our raised garden beds, competition for resources is eliminated as the tap root will grow through the soil platform and into the reservoir – providing “always on” access to moisture. In addition, moisture will leach into the soil above the platform creating a perfect growing environment. Combine this with the Air Gap – the moisture rich layer of air between the platform and the reservoir – and you get supercharged plant growth and enhanced fruit production.
This means you can get the same production out of a 4’ x 6’ space as you would normally get out of a 4’ x 12’ space. Also, since the garden can be placed on any flat surface (even cement or asphalt), you can maximize unused space. Finally, as many prisons are not in the best areas for growing things, our system is a solution for the “too’s”: too hot, too dry, too wet, soil is too bad, etc. In arid climates especially, the water reservoir does not evaporate into the air and waste the moisture – instead it moves into the soil and helps maximize plant growth while saving 65% of water use.
