Hydroponic strawberry towers and Dutch buckets

Today we have been constructing our vertical strawberry towers which will grow 65 plants per tower. They are made out of NEW 4 inch sewer pipe that is cut in 5 ft lengths.  We the mark and till all our holes offset from each other 2.5 inches horizontal and 2 inches vertically.

This a picture of our pipe after cutting and drilling all the holes.  
We also started our Dutch bucket hydroponics system. We got 26 2.5 and 3 gallon icing buckets from some local bakeries and donut shops. We plumbed them and now all we have to do is fill with perlite and plants then hook up out sump system. 

These are our Dutch buckets. 

Here I am constructing the buckets.
