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).
* A percentage of this workshop's proceeds will go towards supporting our programs with Saint Louise House & American Widow Project. To learn more about these partnerships, visit here: http://womendesignbuild.org/about/#whatwedo
