Self-Watering Planter Workshop
July 22, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority (Brick Utilities) is pleased to announce a free workshop for the public at the Brick Reservoir on Sunday July 22nd, between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
Richard Mohr from Georgian Court University’s Mercy Garden will be discussing self-watering planters as well as the type of potting mix and plants that are best suited for them. He will demonstrate how to make one out of a five gallon bucket. Each participant will be provided a five gallon bucket planter, soil and choice of plant to pot in it. All materials will be provided free of charge.
Self-watering planters are great for growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers in areas with limited space. They are easy to maintain and conserve water within the landscape while providing nourishment for your family.
Registration is required since seating is limited. To register, please contact Shari Kondrup at 732-701-4282 or [email protected]. The event will take place at the reservoir’s North Parking Lot located off of Metedeconk Road. For directions, please visit http://brickmua.com/reservoir/resdirections.asp.
This presentation is part of Brick Utilities’ “Weekend at the Reservoir,” a series of free community education programs which focus on local water resources, particularly the importance of the Metedeconk River and Barnegat Bay to the region, and how to conserve water. Programs are being held at the Brick Reservoir by announcement.
