Introduction: Hunger and Malnutrition : Use Bottle Towers

Building towers of recycled bottles and/or pots offers fantastic opportunities to grow fresh food with a minimum of water and fertilizer.  One can grow at home, in cities and villages, all kinds of vegetables and herbs.  Bottle towers are a wonderful tool to alleviate hunger and malnutrition.  They can be built at the lowest cost by any family everywhere on earth, particularly in drylands and deserts.

Can you put more than one plant in each bottle, also can you use smaller bottles say 20 oz size?

In bigger bottles several plants can be grown. In smaller bottles (20 oz) only one.
