Do you want to try your hand at growing plants but don’t have lots of space? Think you need a yard or raised bed to grow food? Think again! Join Sarah DeGiorgis, who’s been blogging for us for over a year about growing in containers, as she shows you what type of containers to use, what plants to choose and information about sun and watering. We’ll also cover transplantation and maintenance of your new container garden. We’ll have soil, seeds and tools and attendees are encouraged to bring their own containers - they don’t have to be traditional pots! Anything that can hold soil and water, has drainage holes in the bottom and is made of something non-porous is just fine. This event takes place the day after Passyunk Square Civic Association's annual Plant Sale at Urban Jungle on Saturday, May 5. Buy your plants on Saturday and learn what to do with them on Sunday. Passyunk Gardens, E. Passyunk and Wharton, Philadelphia, PA 19147 Sunday, May 6, 2012, 2-4pm $5 suggested donation will go directly to the Co-op. RSVP not necessary but please visit our Facebook Event page and let us know you're coming (and spread the word to others).
