The planter that waters itself

It’s a simple and ingenious idea – a planter that delivers just the right amount of water, always at the right time. At the Self-Watering Planter Workshop May 17, attendees learned how it works, got to build their own planters, and went home with planters and plants – the whole works.

For the inside scoop on how it all works, check out Louella Pizzuti’s blog post.

Many thanks to Lindsey Holland for the workshop idea and for making it all so easy, and to Full Circle Farm in Sunnyvale for providing the beautiful venue and seedlings.

If you’d like to get up close and personal with a self-watering planter, come to the Summer Sharing Expo, June 14 1-3pm at Common Ground in Palo Alto.
