Biodegradable Seedling Pots!

Homemade Seedling Pots

We found this happy little garden tip over at the Good News Environmental Blog; it’s an inexpensive way to plant your seeds. Collect your discarded toilet paper rolls, and cut them in half and fill with soil for instant seedling "pots". As they are bottomless and will decompose once planted, they are the perfect starter pot for seedlings. Plus, they don’t cost a thing!

Growing Places 2009

San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project is inviting all of San Diego’s visual artists to participate in helping them create a sustainable food system in San Diego! Everyone living in San Diego County can make art, in any style and in any media, as long as it has a theme of food and/or farm.

What you make can be anything—a celebration of food you love, an expression of your thoughts about food, food history, food crises, or food future—as long as it has to do with food! Donate your art to SD Roots Sustainable Food Project and they’ll showcase it for the duration of Growing Places. Food and Art lovers will bid on the work, and all the proceeds from the silent auction will go directly to the Roots Farmland Fund.

To learn more about this fun and exciting project, visit the San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project website by clicking here.
