How is Foodwall a wicking garden bed?
Biofilta have designed an advanced wicking garden bed kit which fits inside each Foodwall tub. The tray allows the potting mix to access the stored water using cones filled with potting mix that go into the water table. Biofilta have also integrated an aeration loop into the tray design which allows oxygen to get between the potting mix and water table. This prevents the water going stagnant, gets oxygen to the root zone and boosts plant productivity. The aeration tubes are also mosquito proof. The whole water wicking process and aeration loop occurs naturally without any pumps, irrigation or electricity and provides your plants with up to two weeks of water. This is what makes Foodwall such a sustainable way to transform cities into food bowls.
