Recycle Styrofoam Boxes Into Cool Planters

May 06, 2011 6 years ago

Next Saturday, May 14th, the Penn State Master Gardeners could be teaching you how to take a styrofoam fish box, which would otherwise end up in a landfill, and turn it into a cool looking alpine trough planter.

Registration is $25, which covers the cost of making a planter. If you're not sure if you want to make one, you can still attend the class for $10, and if you decide to make a planter, you can pay the additional materials fee (on a first come first served basis).

Most materials will be supplied, but participants must bring plastic  gloves, 4 large plastic trash bags and a flat tool for spreading the grout (face mask optional).

Where: Fairmount Park Horticultural Center, N. Horticultural and Montgomery Dr.
When: Saturday, May 14th (9AM Registration, 9:30 Workshop Begins)

Pre-registration is required and limited to 25.
Registration at the door will be $10.00 for non building workshop.

For registration information, call Penn State Extension at 215-471-2200 Ext 100.


Thanks for the nice blog. It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for and I am glad to come here! Thanks for sharing such a valuable information with us.
