ISO Seltzer Bottles For Seed Starting Planters

22 Feb


Do you drink seltzer?

CVEarthlab gardeners would like to upcycle your empty 1-liter plastic seltzer bottles.  If you’re got any to spare, we will convert them into sub-irrigated, self-watering planters for the seed-starting workshop Monday, March 20th.

To donate your bottles, send an email to Tell us your building number, and we’ll pick up your bottles after you leave them with your doorman.  Thank you in advance!

Indoor Workshop Is Monday, March 20th

All residents are invited to attend the workshop and plant with us!  At 5:30 pm, in the community room, we will start seedlings. The garden committee will provide non-GMO, organic vegetable and flower seeds, organic potting soil and guidance. You bring a small pot or an empty plastic bottle (to convert into a sub-irrigated, self-watering planter).  To reserve a spot, please send a suggested donation ($10. for individuals or $30. per household) via Venmo to Lee-Stern-4 . Alternatively, you can request a check or cash pickup by sending a note to  Either way, we need to know the names of participants, whether or not they are children, along with your building number and contact information.

In addition to the materials for the workshop, the suggested donation counts for your 2023 garden membership.
