At last week's plant sale, I bought two plant pockets from earthlinks, a development project (for homeless and low-income people) that has its roots in the garden. The goal is to use the harvest to create sustainable products that provide an income as well as a closer relationship with nature. They also sell a plethora of pressed flower items, soaps, lotion, bat houses, rain barrels AND honey from their hive in downtown Denver. Now how great is that? Of course, I bought a jar of honey, too.
I love the funky plant pockets hanging on our chain link garden gate -- made from wool sweaters, a bag of soil and a package of seeds are included. I tucked in some herbs for the photo but think I'll plant some lettuces in them instead. It would be super easy to duplicate this design but I won't -- I'll just buy a few more from earthlinks instead!
Happy weekending and thanks for visiting. xo
