HOW TO to create a low cost rooftop vegetable garden using an old water tank. I managed to get it constructed in about Rs. 8000 and paid the guy about Rs. 2000 for labor to get it working. It was fun growing vegetables on my terrace, but then I decided to create Food Forests. Right now creating one at EBHLE After you watch the video, the rest is quite easy. Just put the seeds in the soil and put water in the pipe twice a month. Also when you put earthworms in the soil they will automatically go inside in about 10 minutes. Just make sure you have enough organic veg waste in the worm bin. That’s all there is to it. Also watch another video which shows how to protect it from heavy rainfall.

    nice strategy?

  • ranjit kumar 1 year ago

    The concept is good but the system made for earthworms doesn't work.
    One more thing is clear that coco pet is only the media for low weight good drainage and very poor in nutrition. This doesn't work good for plants. This is my personal experience ?

    Hey Rishi Gangoly,
    It looks really cool, your project! What a shame the rats should have gotten the better of it! How about keeping some cats? I have lots of fun with my seven and they keep me free of rats and other rodents, snakes or scorpions. Anyway I would assume that you'll have rats in the country side as well – among others. I have friends that brought a black mice/rat-eating snake home (it is otherwise not dangerous or poisonous) and ever since everybody is happy…

    More impressed by your DIY project, and the way you captured it on video for a lay man to understand and follow (with no frill language) Do let us know when the Suryagram project takes off. By the way you from Byculla?
    Here is to the humorous side of kitchen garden

    It was a great learning experience. Thanks Rishi.I have also developed an organic terrace garden on the seventh floor of our building (In Mumbai) by recycling kitchen waste and other waste like plastic, discarded building bamboos, brick debris etc. This video will show that you can get amazing yields even in pots on a terrace.

    Hi Rishi,

    Your video is inspirational, can you suggest from where i can get the coco peat in delhi. And is coco peat is self sufficient. No soil is required along with it?

  • Mohammedali Ali 1 year ago

    U given a cape of good hope thanks..unfortunately u didn't complete is vary sad.U explained that u moved to another project. But the next step of sure u can't show in video, so please put a nice explained note….Expecting soon thanks…?

  • TheBushdoctor68 1 year ago

    A good video on a very nice project, but you did go wrong on the coco-peat/water ratio and you know it because you cut the video before we could see that. 😉
    You were basically creating coco-peat slush. There is no way that just one of those blocks will be enough to create a grow medium. You should have shown that, before other people make the same mistake. Otherwise, it's a good video.?
