If you happen to be in New York City on Thursday (July 29), check out this workshop about sub-irrigated planter systems (SIPs).
This exciting method of agriculture has tremendous potential for urban farming / greenscaping - and it’s easier (and cheaper) than you might expect.
Presented by the Center for Urban Greenscaping, the workshop will feature SIP guru, Bob Hyland. Having recently had the pleasure of meeting Bob at Slippery Slope Farm (a sub-irrigated microfarm in Gowanus, Brooklyn), I can assure you that his seminar will be well worth your time. If you can’t make it to Brooklyn, be sure to check out Bob’s blog - it’s great! And look for a post about Slippery Slope Farm and SIPs here on Ecocentric sometime soon.
