INGENIOUS PLANTERS

At Walthamstow Garden Party in 2015, Michelle delivered a workshop entitled 'Ingenious Planters'.  This was a drop-in session where participants could contribute to a 'garden of ideas', sharing their tips for growing in small spaces (on balcomies and patios), and joining in making and constructing planters from found materials including milk cartons, plastic bottles, paint tubs, and even Henry hoovers.  Children could also make bees from corks to add to their planters.  The ladder construction was made in a workshop with a local school and went back to them after the festival.
