How to Setup a Mini-Sprinkler Irrigation System

We’re in the process of filming a new 7-part free e-course series. This is the first one. I’ll be posting each episode to the blog over the next few weeks. Once we’ve filmed all seven, I’ll be transferring them to webpages and will also make them available in the members’ area.

Leverage the multifaceted benefits of irrigation in your garden to prevent bolting, increase photosynthesis, protect the soil food web and, of course, to give your plants the water they need to thrive.

This video covers:
– Setting up an irrigation system to water the ground uniformly
– The type of equipment you’ll need and how to put it together
– How to do it cost effectively (the system demonstrated covers a 40-ft square garden for less than $100)
– Based on a mini-sprayer system which allows you to run multiple sprinklers off a single household faucet
– Dan’s suggested watering frequency for hot days and the benefits of keeping your plants and soil cool
– Examples of plants that should be drip watered to keep their leaves dry and avoid fungal problems.

Andrew Couzens is a software engineer turned soil scientist.

A life long sufferer with inflammatory bowel disease, he was motivated to enter the agricultural space in an effort to “be the change” he believed was necessary to heal his own body.

Healthy plants come from healthy soil, and healthy soil comes from working with nature, not against it.

Leveraging his knowledge and experience in software engineering, he started Terra Flora Organics with a goal of helping conventional growers move from unsustainable practices that destroy soil and negatively affect the health of people and the planet, to regenerative practices that allow intensive farming whilst building soil and healing our minds and our bodies.
