Experience in Appropriate Technology
- I helped my dad build a picket fence out of old pallets.
- I attempted to make a very low tech vertical garden out of used plastic solo cups nailed to boards and leaned them against a wall so that the excess water, when poured into the top cup, would not just get soaked into the ground like a usual potted plant, but go through each plant below it on the board. The idea was also based on the very limited yard space I had behind my apartment.
