Aquaponic Vertical Vegetable Garden

Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls created an aquaponic vertical vegetable garden concept for a showroom in San Francisco. Water is recirculated through the panels from the tank below. Goldfish create the fertilizer needed by the vegetable garden. The balanced system produces oxygen as well as organic herbs and vegetables.

The tower is made from 9 of the Florafelt 12-pocket Vertical Garden Planters that are threaded together with picture wire to form a triangle. The triangular panel units are then attached to 10 foot 3/4″ galvanized pipe and placed over a 36″ Stock Tank.

A fountain pump recirculates the water through the felt panels. The water wicks into the roots of the plants. Drip trays at the base of the panels direct water back into the storage tank. Note the storage tank should be lined with a fish safe non-reactive plastic pond liner or use a similar p.e.t. plastic storage tank at the base.
