The man with the mat is BACK! Great friend of the show Michael Box joins the program again for an update on all things Sustainable Village. Michael gives us an update on his bottomless pot tech, and how the team is still dialing in cap mats to work with this interesting plug and play soil bed style. This leads to a conversation about new BluMat technology, where they are allowing the carrots to trigger a circuit to activate a solenoid switch- allowing for a high outflow of water for irrigation... Michael discusses the new irrometers available on his website, and how they differ from a traditional hygrometer - being far more accurate at measuring actual soil water tension, but also far more delicate and frail. Finally Michael also gives us a little history lesson when it comes to the BluMat system, and highlights a story where the owners visited his headquarters all the way from Austria!
