Idk about the glue, maybe warm water? if you get desperate go to a hardware store and get Goof-Off. you’ll probably cover it up with paint or duct tape anyway. Let me know what works, I’m still scrounging for bottles myself. I foud some 1.5 liter bottles but they’re not Poland Springs and they’re too thick. Oh well, just keep on keeping on!In reply to - Pete Jelliffe posted an update in the group Manhattan: Got my kit last week, and I’ve finished scrounging bottles. Actually I cheated and bought a case of 12 1.5L Poland Spring bottles in chinatown for $15. I have extras, if anyone needs. Does anyone have a tip about how to get the glue off the bottles?

Yeah I second bk farms, I listened to Greg and bike there this weekend. the guy working there had actually tried to make a windowfarm once or twice so he knew what we needed. I still need to get tubing and the actual plants, but I got all my hydroponic stuff here. for the tubing I plan to go to Canal Rubber in Chinatown. I’ll post an update if I get what I needIn reply to - Ian! posted an update in the group Brooklyn: Hey all, just joined and have no idea what I’m doing but hopefully that will change. I’m in Williamsburg near McCarren Park with plenty of windows in my place to set this thing up. Any ideas where I can get some of the stuff needed to get [...] · View
Hey whats the name of the place to get seedlings? I’m planning on doing leafy stuff mostly, bok choy, mint, maybe lettuce. I have no idea where to get the plants in the city thoughIn reply to - Ian Pratt posted an update in the group Brooklyn: Hello! Yesterday I attended Do Tank’s Urban Agriculture workshop in Williamsburg with my girlfriend. We downloaded the WindowFarm Version 3.0 instructions and today we’re setting out to get started. We decided to start our seedlings from scratch to prevent bringing any unwanted critters into our apartment. We found [...] · View
Awesome I love this idea for a group! I’m just building my system now, but I’m hoping to plant bok choy, mint, and something else that’s leafy, maybe Basil. suggestions for the third?
I am a radio journalist working on a story about windowfarms. I interviewed Britta last week and want to get in touch with people who are implementing them in their own homes. Where do you live? Would you be willing to let me come over and see your set up – or even be there while you are building?

I assume after four months you’ve written your story, but I’m gonna be building my first system soon if you want to take a look or talk. Give me a shout: email@example.com.
Hi, I just started my windowfarm project! I’m a Sustainable Urban Environments student at NYU Poly in Downtown Brooklyn. I’m trying to build a 3 plant system for my dorm room and if all goes well, I’m hoping to get the Residence director to help me make a community system for a whole floor of the dorms. I just went to Brooklyn Farms (http://shop.bkfarms.com/) which was really helpful. they had all i needed and the guy working there had actually tried to build a window farm a few times, so he knew some tips. next I’m off to the hardware store and I guess Petco for the air pump. I’m planning on growing leafy plants like bok choy and mint first. does anyone recommend any place for getting seeds or seedlings for that kind of stuff?
My name is Pablo Velez, i live in Montreal and i will be heading to NYC for a week visit.
I did some experiments with aquaponics and hydroponics during the summer and in one of the systems i added a windownfarm.
I had some issues with though.
I will be in NYC between the 1 and 11 of February, i would like to check out some windownfarms while there…. i am not sure if it would be ok to connect with you and see some of the experiments.
I can send you more information about me, including some links of projects i have done.
