Construction of a self-watering pot for gardening    Mon May 28, 2018, Montréal, QC

Do you have trouble keeping your house plants alive and thriving? Don’t worry! You’re not the only one!
80% of all houseplant deaths are due to overwatering!

Why not build a system that lets them take care of themselves, so that you don't have to? In this informative workshop we will create a self-sustaining watering system, from the design process to construction. Not only will it be self-watering, it will be self-fertilizing too! Creating a living soil systems will naturally deter pests and prevent disease.

Other points of interest will include: the design and creation of ergonomic raised bed gardens; minimizing bending over helps to minimize back pain!

If you are interested in learning more about creating your own self-sustaining garden system, then this is the workshop for you!

Come prepared with any questions you may have!
