Not yet seen beautiful wicking bins ... look amazing really. Are they being sold? Moving them would be a major production, digging out the fill another. Not seen IBCs coloured before, cheers up the place no end.

It's the opposite to how you do an aquaponics set up.  That 2/3rds should be the tank with fish, the top third would be the grow bed. 

Found the video very interesting.  Looks like I might have to bring forward installing some wicking beds.

I watched this video with much interest. One thing that I do know is that I am going to get some Sugar Cane Much or the like down. I have to protect all of my New Babies, especially now that some are fruiting.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
