Papercrete Trough Workshop

Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 10:30 am

Turn trash into a rustic, stone-like trough!

Papercrete Trough WorkshopOver half of the paper created in the United States every year is used once, then sent to a landfill. To put that in perspective, that is 720 million trees worth of paper! This is a great way to keep some of that paper out of the landfill and turn it into a beautiful, useful trough that will last for years in your garden!

We will provide all the materials you need. We will teach you the papercrete formula and will help you form your own trough to take home and plant as you wish.

Cost is $25.
You may make 1 large (10-12" diameter) trough or 2 small (6-8" diameter) troughs.

Space is limited!
Our most popular workshop...don't wait until the last minute to reserve your spot!

This workshop is for creating the trough only. It does not include plants. Finished troughs will vary in shape and size from those pictured.
