About

Each Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets kit includes everything you will need to convert your common 5 Gallon plastic buckets into a Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets Garden System. The improved Alaska Grow Buckets design is based on a simple Sub Irrigated Planter (SIP) which uses a wicking medium to draw water from below up to the plant roots. My unique design has been simplified and construction, with the included parts, is much easier to make than any other garden system that I know of. Irrigation is gravity fed and does not require electricity to run pumps or timers, as many other systems do. You can set up your Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets System anyplace that you have a water supply.

Several buckets are connected to a water barrel with a simple float valve regulator to make an automatic Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets Garden System. You only need to refill your water barrel once every few weeks depending on how many buckets are in your system. You can learn more about the Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets System on my Website.

For other examples of the Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets System in use visit my Photo Gallery online.

In 2012 I published a FREE 13 page step by step instruction guide. The DIY Alaska Grow Buckets Guide has been downloaded by thousands of gardeners from all over the globe and is still available for free today. The DIY Guide thoroughly explains just how easy it is to construct your own Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets garden system. Since then many people have asked where they can find all of the parts needed to construct their own Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets. They were directed to many different resources that I found online, but there has always been a strong interest in a simple kit with everything in one package. With your support, through this Kickstarter campaign, I will be able to establish a vendor supply chain and distribution network necessary to offer DIY Self-Watering Alaska Grow Bucket kits to those gardeners that want to construct their own Alaska Grow Buckets Garden System. Please spread the word among your Gardening friends. Build your own Self-Watering Alaska Grow Buckets Garden System or use your rewards as gifts for Family Members, or Gardening Friends, or donated them to a local Community Garden group of your choice. Contact me for further details.

**I strongly encourage that gardeners find and re-purpose used buckets whenever possible and help us to keep plastic containers out of our landfills. Look for the Type 2 HDPE symbol on the bottom to indicate the plastic is safe to use for growing vegetables. Many bakeries and restaurants have free or very low cost buckets available. I use the familiar Home Depot orange buckets that I get for a very reasonable price.

Risks and challenges

All pledges for support will be held until the total funding goal has been met. No Payments will be collected unless the total goal has been met. We are working with a centrally located fulfillment service and highly reputable vendors that have a history of on-time service. It will always be our mission to ship rewards as quickly as possible and customers will be notified with ship date and tracking information. I believe that the stated delivery period of March 2015 should allow time for gardeners to prepare for the summer growing season. Any unforeseen delay will be reported immediately with updated delivery date.
