Oregon School Garden Summit (photo report back)

First Annual Oregon School Garden Summit! It was amazing! It had a beautiful turn out! Thanks to all the participants for attending our workshop and those of others. Thanks to the presenters and for sharing their knowledge to help us all think and grow. Furthermore, a HUGE thank you to all the folks who organized the event and put it on for us all!
Here we go!

Ahhh, a delicious lunch!

A packed house!

The Crew! (Most of us.)

Self-watering container #1!

Here is a self-watering container Ian made today with his little girl. This design was made using the instructions from "The Urban Homestead; Your Guide to Self-sufficient Living in the Heart of the City", by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen. We plan to make more! Stay tuned this summer to see how well it works. 
The necessary tools.

The Materials
"I got a hole in my bucket..."

Putting it together

Almost there
A little help with the lid.

Make sure to put a 1/4 inch hole in the reservoir bucket for the over-flow. 
The final product!
