Wicking Bed Requests

We are now installing wicking garden beds made from salvaged materials around Austin, Texas!

How Can I Get One?

Currently, we are able to provide these for free with a focus on areas in great need of healthy food (such as East Austin) and areas with good visibility to the public If yours bed is the first in your area, we will place a white board next to it. When a majority of your neighbors indicate interest, we’ll come back to line the block with beds!

Why a Wicking Garden Bed?

* Saves more than 50% of water compared to a conventional garden bed
* It stays clear of weeds, root systems, invasive neighbors
* The wicking effect causes continual automatic watering
* Suitable for small patio space for those who live in apartment or townhome
* Only water once every 2 weeks or less
* Can be maintained by a low pressure water system, grey water drainage

 Note: Each bed is different due to variations in materials and the creative visions of our volunteer painters! Of course, you can and are encouraged to participate in the making your bed!
