Make your own self-watering grow bucket

In the blink of an eye, last week Hands On Harvests and the Fairfax County Master Gardeners gave out 32 tomato plants in self-watering buckets to clients at Food for Others.

The buckets were assembled and donated by Hitt Contracting; seedlings were provided by HOH and planted by the Camelot Garden Club, neighbors, and master gardeners, and the project was supported from start to finish by Extension Agent Adria Bordas. So far this year, the HOH-FCMG partnership has distributed over 70 self-watering tomato buckets.

We're considering offering these buckets next year as a buy-one-donate-one program.

Would you buy one, donate one?

  • YES!

  • No thanks

  • I would just donate one.

But if you can't wait for us to make up our mind or if you're the DIY type, here are instructions for how to assemble them.
