A vertical window garden using old plastic bottles and a pump system to allow water to flow to all the containers. What a nice idea by Britta Riley.

 

Britta Riley felt that her reliance on the outside world for all her daily needs was too much. She wanted to grow her own food rather than buy it all from the supermarket but how to do this in a tiny apartment without any sort of garden? This seemingly impossible challenge didn't put Britta off, with her creative and technological background, she came up with an idea to create a vertical window garden using old plastic bottles and a pump system to allow water to flow to all the containers. With a lot of fine tuning, this idea has now become an award-winning commercial product allowing anyone to grow their own food in the smallest of spaces. If you have a window then you can have a window garden.
