As announced in a previous post, the idea here is to recycle old TV cases to create a soilless agriculture in Agbogbloshie.
Here are the different steps to create a Re-vegetating TV.
Put sand and soil in a TV case so it allows plants to grow in a “healthy middle”.
The idea here is to protect plants from acid rain and to create a water reserve.
We use for that corrugated iron (easily findable on site) to separate two different areas. Water so will be filtered.
To complete the TV case, we add it a water pump made with iron tubes.
Easy to make, it will allow farmers to pump “healthy” rain water to water plants. According to seasons, that TV case will be self-sufficient to grow plants.
Here is a “blueprint” of how to use the water pump.
