There has been quite a heated discussion about the toxicity of growing food in tires. I’ve decided to put the question to test with an experiment.
There are two results I am looking for out of this;
1) Is growing in tires a viable method – what problems and what yields can we get?
2) Is the food grown in tires have any toxicity from the tires?
If you are the person who knows which lab and what tests to order to verify the toxicity of the potatoes, please tell us!
And please rate this video and write your ideas and opinions down below in the comments section.
Note the interview I did with John Jeavons is here:
