The educators and parents at the Tawa Montessori school in the Wellington region in New Zealand have a passion and a mission to ensure that children under their care have every opportunity to develop their self-confidence and personal creativity. And reusing and recycling is an important part of this.
Their garden consisting of recycled plastic milk bottles blew me away and had me hitting my recycling bin to recover whatever plastic jugs I could find. What a great way to start children gardening. I know that my little grandson who attends a nursery school where gardening plays a large part, will enjoy this idea very much. It’s portable, doable, and cost-effective - easy enough for anyone, no matter what size, to have a garden close at hand. Take a gander and pass it on.
If you have a garden, well, you need tools. Take a look at how mother, gardener extraordinaire, creative recycler, and blogger, Melissa, over at her blog, A Farm of Your Home, recycled her plastic milk bottles. And she uses up every scrap from hers.
