City dwellers, urban families, owners of small patios … the UrBin Grower – Self Watering Container System is the ideal method for you to grow your own vegetables and control the quality of the food you eat. The UrBin grower works in sunlight, shade, indoors and out and lets you grow up to three different vegetables at once. It provides endless organic vegetables by facilitating growth through a mixture of the Square Foot Gardening method, all natural soil amendments, and a self-watering reservoir. You just mix the amendments with your soil, plant your vegetables, and wait until the roots are long enough to dip into the reservoir. The reservoir is totally visible so you'll never have to guess about when to water your plants again.
The importance of trace minerals
Both plants and animals – humans included – benefit from a regular supply of trace minerals, which are best transferred to the human body through vegetables grown in soil rich in trace minerals. Today, due in part to the exclusive use of chemical fertilizers and ground water pollution, nearly all agricultural land is depleted of trace minerals. To be quickly absorbed by plants, trace minerals must be finely ground into rock dust. When moisture is added, they clump together, acting like clay.
