Upcyling: From Cans to Container Gardens!
1006 Oxford Drive, Redlands CA 92374
Start time: 9:00am - 12:00pm
Maximum number of people: 25
This project will focus on diverting aluminum cans from the waste stream and repurposing them as sets of planters. This family-friendly activity will include actions for adults (preparing cans through sanding edges and hammering drainage holes) and kids (drawing labels for cans and creating plant care sheets); once can preparation and decoration is done, education staff from the Inland Empire Resource Conservation District will present an approximately 30-minute all-ages overview on local food, soil health, and importance of pollinator-support species in our yards. Following the program, it's planting time! Kids and adults can work together to place drainage rocks, soil, and seeds into containers, and they will be ready to take home! Snacks and information on local resources will be available at the event for everyone!
Check-in for the event will be from 9 - 9:30, with the activities beginning promptly at 9:30.
