Making Low-Water Planters

June 22, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Screen shot 2014-05-27 at 1.07.39 PMA morning hands-on workshop with Saundra Leigh and Catherine Sutton. Bring a waterproof container you would like to use as a planter, or better yet, two identical ones that can sit inside one another, and we will share the required materials and expertise so that you can go home with a complete planter.

Low-water “wick” planters use a lot less water than top-watered containers, provide a better growing medium for plant roots that like constant water (tomatoes not recommended), considerably reduce evaporation from the surface, are impervious to gophers, and are moveable. In other words they can be even better in some ways than planting in the ground… and they are a great way to get children excited about growing things.

RSVP required! We need to know by June 20 if you intend to come. The class is free. Location (on Madison 900 block in Albany) revealed to those who let us know they’re coming by June 20. RSVP and questions to catherine (at) sonic.net. Thank you!
