First H&S planter casting and self-watering detailed design challenge

May 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The casting of the first H&S planter is scheduled for 11am on Sunday 27th May

The “tree hugging planter” mould is taking shape and I am confident it will be finished on time for 11am on Sunday morning when I suggest we gather at Orion Business Centre, London, SE14 5RT (7 min walk from Surrey Quays Tube).  We will mix some concrete and pour it into the mould.  This should not take more than 90 min including tidying up, group photo, coffee, etc.  After this “epic” moment we can go to Café East or similar to grab some food and drinks.

Engaged in the action we will discuss: the planter relocation schedule, waterproofing, self-watering concept -> execution, planting scheme, etc.

If you cannot make it this Sunday we will have demoulding on Saturday June 2nd and casting of the second planter.  This will be equally if not more existing as the “tree hugging planter” will be revealed in it true beauty to the world for the first time

Self-watering detailed design challenge – please help!

The planter has a provision for a large water tank. With some understanding of water and its behaviour I have never constructed a self-watering planter and need your help, else I cannot focus on finishing the proto-mould. No experience needed and anyone willing to learn new things through research and communication with those in the know is perfect for the job. A PhD in physics will be an advantage J

Would few volunteers willing to do some research into the area of self-watering via wicking come forward.
