Use the UrBin Grower just about anywhere!

The UrBin Grower provides endless organic vegetables by facilitating growth through a mixture of the Square Foot Gardening method, all natural soil amendments, and a self-watering reservoir. Simply mix in the amendments with your soil, plant your vegetables, and wait until the roots are long enough to dip into the water reservoir. You’ll never have to worry about over or under watering again!

The UrBin Grower is a self-watering container, which means you don’t need to rush in the morning to water your windowboxes or patio garden, or risk coming home to droopy, wilting plants. The UrBin Grower uses a square water reservoir which the container rests in. The roots of the plant you have in the container will be able to reach down through the soil and drink from the resevoir when necessary, which prevents under or over watering.

The Value of Trace Minerals

A volcanic rock mined on Mt. Baker in Northwest Washington State.

A volcanic rock mined in central Oregon, used widely in agriculture.

Glacial Dust
Found in western Canada, these rich deposits of minerals were left behind as glaciers receded.

Both plants and animals, including humans benefi t from regular supply of trace minerals, which are best transferred to the human body through vegetables grown in soil rich in trace minerals.

Today nearly all agriculture land is depleted of trace minerals, due in part to the exclusive use of chemical fertilizers and ground water pollution. For trace minerals to be quickly absorbed by plants they must be fi nely ground into rock dust or rock. In technical terms - 75 microns.

Because these trace minerals are so fi nely ground, they react like clay, clumping together when any amount of moisture is added.

Trace minerals in the soil amendments included in the UrBin Grower attach to dry coir when mixed together. This spreads the trace minerals evenly as the coir is in all of the soil medium in the UrBin Grower.

It is not necessary to add or replace trace minerals, because they are slowly released in the soil medium over many years.

Why do I need these Soil Amendments?

The soil amendments and trace minerals included with the UrBin Grower are not commonly available in small quantities. These soil amendments will provide the basis of a long lasting soil medium. We do not include soil or organic compost, which is widely available at most garden centers.

Soil amendments included with the UrBin Grower:

Coconut Coir is a byproduct of coconut husks. Formerly Coir was discarded, but is now recognized as a renewable replacement for peat moss. Coir is used in three forms, screened, chunks, and shredded. Coir is an amazing soil amendment which offers the following soil improvements:

  • High water holding capacity
  • Retains and releases nutrients
  • Naturally weed free
  • Disease resistant
  • Spongy texture
  • Excellent air space & drainage
  • Develops elaborate root systems
  • Neutral to slightly acidic pH
  • Soil amendment & conditioner
