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 at the seed-starting workshop Friday March 6th.

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 Friday, March 6th

All residents are invited to attend the workshop and plant with us!  At 6pm, 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).  An RSVP, and a suggested donation of $2. for materials, is requested for each participant.

We hope you’ll join us.  – Denise, Judith, Sandy, and Shari, Core garden committee members
