Create Your Own Garden with Self-Watering Seed Pots
Saturday, April 24, 2021
1:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m.
In conjunction with the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum's Earth Week celebration, join Morris Jumel Mansion for a special Earth Day workshop and a virtual walk through the park and gardens.
Learn about how we can help pollinators like butterflies and bees by growing native plants for them to eat, and begin your own garden by creating a self-watering seed pot.
You will need to collect these materials from home to make your seed pot:
- Potting soil
- Recycled plastic container, such as a Coke bottle
- String or shoelace
- Safety scissors
- Nail and hammer (or the heel of a shoe)
- An adult to supervise and help with hammering
