If we ever end up in a SHTF scenario, knowing some survival skills would be ideal. Today we break away from guns to share Savage’s latest creation with you! Seeing as how my home garden has utterly failed for the last 5 years, I wanted to come up with a solution where I could have a high output of vegetables without having to break the bank. I looked at several options and designs online, but they all seemed overly complex and, often, expensive to undertake. With the setup I came up with, it’s possible to have a decent sized hydroponic garden for less than 0 (less than that if you’re a craigslist wizard). So check out the video and then reference the materials and cost list to build your own!

    A cement mixer and garden hose to wash the gravel, then dump the gravel into the tubs..just saying..would an extra step but cleaner.

    PVC is very toxic. Should use HDPE or ABS piping.

    I see 3 things you could still do with this bad boy.  #1 You could add a day/night photographic sensor so that the DC power turns on by automation instead of manually.  #2 Use some hydroponic fertilizer with micro nutrients. #3 Buy some seed starting foam from eBay and use them to start the seeds, so that the plants will grown faster since they would start with the hydro fertilizer. Just adding plants is good, but are they GMO, and they will not grow fast since they were already started in another manner of growing technique. I hope I gave you some good ideas and help. Votes up!

    Savage really is growing tomatos, color me surprised. i would suggest that he go with an API "master test Kit" to measure PH. the master test kit is far more accurate than the strips and the test kit is a better buy in the long run (amazon has them for about $20 or so ). I cant wait till i get enough land to do something like that, great job Savage!!!

    Very cool! This is something I'm in the process of building this summer. Is there any benefit in going with the rock as opposed to doing the foam floating cut outs that other aquaponic gardeners use?
