Re-purposing shelves for container gardening

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP


Recently Maria Vanderham, a friend,  made a request that I  store some shelves for her that she had intended to use in the future.   After seeing them I told her I would on the condition that I can use them to experiment with vertical gardening.  My thought is that it would be water wise and more productive.  I will be spending the next few months of summer finding out!

One aspect of having this vertical experience is that it lines up with our front door.  Every time we enter or leave this is the immediate view.  I believe the environment changes our brains,  so am curious about how this will affect ours!

I will continue to explore and share his lifestyle adventure – stay tuned.
