It is a self-sustaining, self-watering, organic, hybrid, hydroponic, gardening system that catches and uses rainwater collected from one down spout. The water is pumped and distributed using a solar power pumped, giving you a complete garden bed for FREE! It doesn’t need city water or electricity. Once the tank is full, this garden bed is capable of watering itself with rainwater for up to 45 days. You can fill it with flowers, shrubs, and edible vegetables and it fits in perfectly as a display in either a residential, educational, or retail center.
