Step one: assemble your materials. You will need:
-plants or seeds that will grow things you want to eat!
-2 ice cream buckets (we got ours free from a student run ice cream parlour at Mcgill!)
-cloth cloth. go sacrifice a shirt to the rag gods.
-a multitool or utility knife
Step One: Stab it in the bottom! That is make drainage holes in the bottom of one of the buckets.
Step Two: Cut strips of your cloth and shove them through some of the wholes. Let them hang out both sides far enough (you'll get the idea). These (in theory) facilitate moisture transfer.
Step Three: Place this bucket in the other bucket and stab holes about an inch and a half from the bottom.
Step Four: Fill that bad boy with dirt!
Step Five: Plant you plants (or seeds) and water them!
Step Six: Wait. I'll let you know when I'm done that step.
