We have a local grower installing a low cost hydroponic system developed by the University of Florida (see that system here http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/HS/HS118600.pdf). The system uses recycled 2 liter bottles attached to posts to hold plant media. We’ve called around high and low and con not find a source for these bottles other than everyday people collecting them. If you or your organization would like to collect these bottles and support a local grower reusing everyday materials please give me a call!!
