RECIPE: EASY PLANTERS For a pop-up demonstration project, try this easy recipe for creating planters: ɖɖPurchase wooden boxes from your local supplier or a hardware / craft store. ɖɖDecorate boxes or brand with spray painted partner logos as desired. ɖɖBorrow or purchase medium size plants. ɖɖDrop plants right into planter box. For larger boxes, create a “false bottom” to allow small / medium plants to be as visible as possible. ɖɖPlace planters in desired location. See the Barrier Elements section on page 27 for more details on placement within specific project type.
