Tips on SIPS

SIPS (self-irrigating potting systems) are becoming more popular everyday, in large part due to the evolution of the water conservation movement/mentality. Modernization and availability of tools and fittings make these systems a tangible reality for the average Joe/Josephine.

Advanced Master Gardener and Master Composter: Jesse Raudenbush, explores the finer details of how SIPS work AND completes the build process of a “Rain-gutter Grow system” (with class participation). The perfect setup for patios or other limited spaces where container pots are the only option.. Ties right into your rain barrel!

Though this is partly hands-on, students should be prepared to take notes or photo document. 
Class size is limited. Registration is $5.   Please register here.    Minimum age 12 (accompanied by adult).
