Ready to Re-Purpose
Like so many other creative conservationists, we here at the Public Health Garden are always looking for new ways to improve waste disposal systems by encouraging composting and aiming to reduce the amount of materials that actually qualify as waste. Re-purposing, the lesser-known 4th "R" hidden in the "Reduce, Re-Use and Recycle" mantra, is the inspiration for our spring seed-starting project.
We've decided not to import any additional propagating pots from local contributors but instead to gather toilet paper rolls (and paper towel rolls) and make our own biodegradable pots for our early greenhouse seedlings and Maryland Day giveaways.
Want to participate? Stay tuned for details on drop-off locations and pot-building, seed-starting work hours.
