    We built a small portable version of your garden and did a demo for earth day in Cadillac, Michigan, USA. It was a big hit, and the demo made the front page of the local paper. We gave you credit at the demo and directed people to your instructable. We love the idea and will be adding on more as time goes on. Thank you so much! Margaret G and Bryan B (family). There will also be a video on the transition Cadillac website;

    Thanks for the excellent initiative and the good news about the appreciation of the bottle towers by the public. It's fine to see the attention given by the local newspaper. I will now post acopy of that article on my Facebook page (Container Gardening Alliance). I am looking forward for the video. Could you please send me some photos with the details of your towers ?

    This is a great idea....might I suggest that it would be so much easier to have still pictures rather than a movie....too long to load and hard to refer back to when needed!!!
