New Farm Tub ™ Growing System Kits

All you need to create your own self-watering stock tank planter

If you have your own stock tank, Farm Tub is offering a Do it Yourself Farm Tub Growing System Kit to convert tanks into self-watering planters. Each kit includes a reservoir insert, capillary wicks, spacers, fill tube and cap, water-level indicator bobber, and spigot for drainage.

Inserts customized for Hastings brand tanks are available in 3′, 4′, 5′ and 6′ long (M and L sizes). In the Denver metro area, we offer 3’x2’x8′ and 3’x2′ Round but we must have your tub to fit them.

For other tank brands or planters, we offer insert kits in 2’x 3′, 2′ x 4′, 2’x 5′ and 2’x 6′ rectangular sizes to turn any water-holding planter into a Farm Tub growing system. You just use a jigsaw to cut them to fit your tank or planter. (3’x 8′ rectangle and 3’x 3′ square are available for local pick up in Boulder only.)

“Grow the Change”

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Spring has sprung, which is enough motivation for most to start growing.  Since Farm Tub was inspired by our connection to the abundance of fresh food in the Northwest, we wanted to share the content of an amazing website out of BC from an organization called Overgrow the System – http://overgrowthesystem.com/  .

The  stories of people growing their own food and those growing better food for others – such as “Grow the Change You Want to See In the World” –  are worth a few minutes to nourish your soul.  Bon appettit!

We dare you not to be inspired!
