    Found this in another garden discussion room. We are going to try it at our non-profit for kids. The Olla pots with irrigation looks like a good system with  lower maintenance (after you make and install, of course)

    Hi Sheila! The SGSO network has a webinar this week about simple drip irrigation systems. Here is more information:

    Drip Irrigation Systems can save time, conserve water, and enhance ease and health of your school garden plants. Join us to discuss how to set up and manage a simple drip irrigation system. We will share the components needed to create a system, steps to calculate/order materials, basic skills to build/repair your system, and tips for year-round management within a school garden context. The webinar will be mixed presentation of lecture, sharing of video clips, and ample time for Q and A. Presenters will include Moses Thompson, Brit Palomarez, and Caleb Ortega of the University of Arizona Community and School Garden Program.

    If you can't attend live they do record the webinars and post them to their webpage.
    I hope this helps!
