Styrotroff (StyrofoamTrough) Making Workshop by Dale Greer

THURSDAY, July 12, 2018

Meeting at the Bellevue Botanical Garden

Long-time member and chapter award winner Dale Greer will be giving a step-by-step demonstration of how to construct a styrotroff - a planting trough made from a Styrofoam box.

Styrotoffs are great because they are lightweight, durable, and portable. Plus, you can customize the growing medium for each one so that you can enjoy rock garden plants that may be hard to grow in our open gardens. Not to mention that it is a great way to recycle Styrofoam shipping containers - instead of tossing them in landfills, you can make beautiful troughs for your plants!

Dale will also demonstrate great ideas for customizing and finishing your styrotroff in various ways to satisfy any creative passion!

If you would like to know more about Styrofoam troughs, there is lots of information on the internet, not to mention our informative project page.

(One quick scheduling note - the annual picnic which has traditionally been in July will be held in August starting this year in order to accommodate this new July meeting)

Join us at the Bellevue Botanical Garden at 7:00 pm for social time, 7:30 pm for the meeting and program. Our meetings are free and open to the public.

See you all soon!
