Planter Box Building

from Women.Design.Build


Join Annie Welbes, edible landscaper of Subsist to Resist, in this do-it-yourself planter building workshop!

Each participant will be constructing their very own planter box using the provided tools and reclaimed wood. Once the boxes are constructed, everyone will have a variety of culinary herbs to choose from to adorn their newly built planter box.

The provided wood will be pre-cut and pre-stained. You will do the assembling with a nifty nail gun. The final product will measure 1' wide x 2' long x 1' deep.

No tool or planting experience is necessary. Come to have fun and make something beautiful (and delicious).

Thank you to Reclaimed Space for providing the reclaimed wood and to Tillery Park for hosting us. Learn more about them here: |
