Hands-on SIP Workshops by Green Roof Growers and Spontaneous Vegetation

Green Roof Growers is delighted to be teaming up with Nance Klehm‘s Spontaneous Vegetation to offer two practical workshops on making two-bucket SIPs.

They are scheduled for Wednesday May 20 (6-8 pm) and Saturday May 30 (1-3 pm).

You’ll go home with:

A ready to plant two-bucket sub-irrigated planter (SIP). Our experience has shown that it will produce, on average, 25 lbs of tomatoes during a growing season.

Enough potting mix, organic fertilizer, and powdered lime to plant your tomato.

An organic heirloom tomato plant, from the Green Roof Growers seed-starting group.

A comprehensive understanding of how SIPs work and how to put yours to work once you get home.

Where – Wicker Park, near Division and Leavitt
Specific directions given upon confirmed reservations.
When – Wed., May 20th (6-8 pm) and Sat., May 30th (1-3 pm)
Cost – $50
Register with Nance by email – nettlesting@yahoo.com

Co-teaching with Bruce and H2 will be LA’s favorite homesteader Erik Knutzen of Homegrown Evolution and co-author, with his wife Kelly Coyne, of The Urban Homestead. Autographed copies will be for sale and we’ll be giving away a copy or two as well.

Hope to see you in May…
