The Problem

I hope that by building and distributing recycled planters across my neighborhood, the rest of the community will realize how easy it is to contribute! Since all of the materials used are recycled people don't have to spend a single penny, all it costs is energy in time! But there is no price tag when it comes to improving your neighborhood!

Our Plan

So our project will recycle old scrap wood and turn them into planters for practically no cost, we will then proceed by planting native plants in them and promoting the neighborhood to help in the process. The scrap wood can be easily attained by old pallets that markets typically just leave behind their building when they no longer have use for them. Since I live in southern California we have to use drought resistant plants, of which are commonly donated by local gardeners for projects like these. I will then seek promotions from our neighborhood in both the community newsletter, and as well in the local paper.
