Consider Container Gardens
May 1, 2019
If speaking is silver, then listening is gold.
-Turkish Proverb

Sandra Duncan and Jody Martin, in their beautiful book, Bringing the Outside In, encourage all educators, “even if located in a metropolitan area with little green space,” to “grow gardens within a room’s four walls. Container gardens do not need a large piece of land or even a lot of space – all you need is light, dirt, water, and a collection of containers for the plants. It is also not necessary to invest a lot of money in purchasing the containers. Take a look around --- garage, basement, kitchen -- for vases, bowls, vessels, mason jars, or even thick glass bottles. You might be surprised at the many cast-off objects that can be magically transformed into whimsical containers.”
