Hi folks.
Kira & I turned a stock tank into a self watering wicking garden bed/sub irrigated planter.  Have included some ideas on different ways the plumbing can be set up as well as alternate media & reservoir configurations. 

Hopefully there will be a few useful ideas in there that will help you with your own self watering garden build. Have included some helpful links below as well. 

You can Subscribe to our Backyard Farm & Aquaponics channel if you're interested in getting more clips covering what we get up to here on our small block land. It would be great to see you come along & say "G'Day" when we post a clip.  

When you become a patron on Patreon you'll get access to our member only feed with early access to clips, daily picture/video updates & monthly online hangouts depending on your level of support. 

Hope you enjoyed the clip & your garden is booming.
Cheers all,

Tilkey drum reconditioner for SE QLD readers.
