Recyclable materials plus the need to stay green, equals green mojo!

March 21, 2015

If you’ve been wondering how I began urban gardening. Basically,  just dived in. 🙂

I really don’t have any idea where my experimenting and stubbornness would lead me! All I know is that I need to start right away or the interest will fade!

The fact was, I really don’t have any idea where my experimenting and stubbornness would lead me! All I know is that I need to start right away or the interest will fade!

Take a look at these first crazy pictures!

Pic ture 1. First green house with a vertical pipe holder frame made of metal cut outs. I also collected plastic bottles to recycle as plants pots.

I occupied a portion of my mom’s orchid garden to set up my first hydroponics set up using PVC pipes (Picture 1 above) The frame was made out of metal cut out from previous house renovation materials. I asked a welder to piece together a vertical pipe holder.

PVC Green House

Picture 2. Rectangular green house (Orange House) made of recycled lumber and PVC pipes.

This second mini green house (I called Orange House) demanded more experimenting from me. I have to learn a bit of carpentry, plumbing and even woodworking just to piece together a ton of recyclable materials! Of course I can ask a skilled worker to this for me, but well I’ve got time (and fat) to burn anyway.

Gardening needs

Obviously excited urban gardener “assembling” stuff to his first ever urban garden.

I gathered all the gardening needs I could think of and immediately started sowing seeds. Haste? Maybe. Like I said I wanted to start right away before my enthusiasm and excitement wanes. I’ll just get the readings and science once I got the “farm” running!

So for me, once I got sufficient recyclable materials collected, I immediately constructed my “farm”. I read urban gardening, hydroponics, aquaponics and organic agriculture “along the way”!
