Potato Tower

Progress of the Potato Towers planted by some students using old tyres in Sep-10. The idea is to stack the tyres up so potatoes, being a root vegetable can grow all the way down.

Potatoes originated from South America and are an important source of carbohydrate, potassium and vitamin C. There are more than 400 varieties of potatoes but unless you’re a gardener, you will only find some 15 varieties generally available. In the context of self-sufficiency, potatoes are an important and popular food crop. They can be boiled, baked in their skins, sliced and fried, roasted, mashed – altogether tasty!

So, don’t throw away your old tyres!
