Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Sub-Irrigated Planters (SIPs) are a very practical way to plant with many benefits, especially if you have limited green space or water access!  Join us to learn about different kinds of SIPs, and construct a small one of your own!

For the construction part of the workshop, please bring a 2 liter plastic soda/drink bottle with you to the workshop.

Grow to Learn registered schools will receive growing medium and a few seeds for the SIP, while supplies last.

Grow to Learn registered schools only may request soil, compost, and lumber for spring delivery.

Please RSVP for this workshop.
