I found this as a result of a search relative to the previous post. Give a senior a SIP! Blake knows!
Welcome to the EarthBox® Senior Garden and Guide, and to a world of gardening developed by a senior citizen, Blake Whisenant. Blake collaborated on the design of the EarthBox® during an extensive research project that spanned years of experiments performed by scientists at the University of Florida, Rutgers and Penn State. From the onset, Blake, a concerned Florida tomato farmer, knew that the world could benefit from a high yield, sustainable container vegetable garden to conserve and protect resources and to provide food security. Naturally, as a senior citizen, he also wanted to develop a product to conserve the energy and resources of senior citizens! In addressing the energy and resource needs of Mother Earth and her senior citizens, today’s EarthBox® uses less water and fertilizer and reusable potting mix to grow and harvest healthy crops in an easy to use system on casters that requires no weeding, no hoeing and no digging!
