HOMEGROWN How-to cards: How To Make a Self-Watering Planter

Recently we enlisted the help of Sara Bee Jensen from Lost Bird Found (aka The most creative woman in the world) to create a series of how-to cards with some of the information we have here on HOMEGROWN.

They are more beautiful than we ever imagined and we’re so excited to be able to share them with you. The cards will be handed out at the various events we’ll be at this year, and they will also live in the under the “Show and Tell” tab in the header of  So, if you have an event coming up, a garden party, wedding shower, baby shower, potluck – anything – these are a terrific little token of affection for your friends. Please. Steal them, print them, share them with others.

First up, is the “How To Make A Self-Watering (or Sub-irrigated) Planter”. More tomorrow.
