The Problem

There is often quite a bit of waste involved with starting a garden (or with teaching children about gardening), so we want to make a simple zero-waste solution for gardening. We also want to teach the next generation all about zero-waste lifestyles and native gardening.

Our Plan

We will be up-cycling paper towel and toilet paper rolls into compostable planters. We will then be planting North GA native plants/herbs in those planters. Our conservation explorers will also be participating in a lesson about zero-waste and the importance of native gardening.
