Fantastic Earthtainer press for Raybo

daninchicagoApril 22, 2011

A friend of mine forwarded this article from Slate to me this morning -- great article about the Earthtainer.

As a long-time lurker on this board, I've learning about everything that I know from gardening from the knowledgeable and helpful folks here -- glad to see that others will similarly benefit!

Thanks Folks!

What really impressed me was the writer Farhad Manjoo had actually taken the time to build 3 of his own EarthTainers first - in researching and writing the story. How many Reporters would do that in preparation.

I really hope it does bring awareness that the EarthTainer growing principles can be applied anywhere in the world, and that folks in Africa can fashion them out of surplus drums, etc. to make their own growing systems "Peace Corps" style.
