I was contacted by a lovely lady who works for the US army over in Afghanistan, she is wanting to set up a couple of IBC systems for a school that is being built over there. She has sent me a few pics and will keep some more pics coming as they get things set up (with approvals to publish :) ).

We are working on getting some pumps sent over for them at the moment, as well as some fittings and information for the kids. Hope to keep this updated often as it progresses..

The school still under construction..

Seems like there's quite a lot of this around, hopefully it will be ok as growing media.

This is not the most fun way to move gravel, but it goes to show how keen they are to help out these kids with an AP system.
