There's nothing like being able to walk out your own door and grab a big handful of fresh vegetables and herbs and make a tasty meal. This vertical planter project allows you to grow a lot of produce in a small amount of space, so there's always a fresh batch of lettuce or mint ready to go when you need it.
If you want to learn how to make your own vertical planter, you can sign for this free DIY Workshop at your local Home Depot. It's available at Home Depot locations all across the U.S., and it doesn't cost a cent to learn.
The DIY Workshop will cover the basics of building this modern and modular planter project, provide measured instructions, and offer basic tips on plant selection and care in your natural climate. It's also a great option to learn about basic and safe power tool use. The whole thing is constructed with easy-to-find and affordable dimensional lumber, so you whip this guy up over a weekend, and be ready for spring.
The Vertical Gardening Workshop takes place on Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 10:00 - 11:30AM. You can find more details and register at the Home Depot Workshops page. Next week, I'll be building a customized version on this project for my own home, and sharing the process with you. Stay tuned.
Oh, and get this: If you live near Portland, Oregon, I, Chris Gardner from ManMade, will be teaching the workshop at the Beaverton Home Depot (Store #4018 4401 SW 110th Ave). If you're in the area, this is an awesome opportunity for me to meet and collaborate with ManMade readers, and I've love to hang out with you and use some power tools for a day.
So, head to the Home Depot DIY Workshops page to sign up, and we'll see you on Saturday.
Thanks to Home Depot for sponsoring this post and making ManMade a partner for the 2015 DIY Workshop series. Thank you for supporting the brands that make ManMade possible.
