It's May and time for the Transition US Community Resilience Challenge.
We held a brainstorming session last month at to plan what we can do locally this month. The answer: Self watering planter workshop!
You are all invited to attend the Self-Watering Planter workshop at Full Circle Farm Sunnyvale.
A self-watering planter (SWP) is a planter that draws water on an as-needed basis from a storage reservoir.
SWPs have oodles of benefits:
Why make your own?
Fruits and vegetables need plenty of water during their growing cycle. You can buy SWPs with big reservoirs, but they’re very expensive and often available only by catalog. Cheaper SWPs are available, but the reservoirs are too small (a mature cherry tomato plant in a container in full sun can drink up to seven cups of water a day). The bigger your reservoir, the longer you can leave your planter between watering, which anyone with a busy schedule can appreciate. By making your own SWP, you control the reservoir size.
As a bonus, once you learn how it works, you'll be able to retrofit any appropriate container to be self-watering.
When/where: Sat May 17, 2014 1-4pm
Full Circle Farm Sunnyvale, 1065 Dunford Way, Sunnyvale, CA
$30 includes all supplies required to create your very own self-watering planter
You MUST register and pay in advance to be able to have the provided supplies. Don't wait to sign up – we have supplies for a max of 15 people. To register and pay, go to http://fullcirclesunnyvale.org/workshop-registration/
If you want to learn, but not make the planter or get the supplies, you can just show up.
