Self-watering planter workshop at the Huntington


Aspiring urban gardeners, take note: Erik Knutzen, writer of the Homegrown Evolution blog and co-author of "The Urban Homestead: Your Guide to Self-Sufficient Living in the Heart of the City," will lead a hands-on workshop on how to build a self-irrigating planter.

The session runs from 9 to 11 a.m. Jan. 30 at the Huntington Botanical Gardens. But hurry -- as of Thursday, the class could accommodate only five more people.

Self-irrigating pots are an easy and water-wise way to grow vegetables in small spaces such as a balcony or patio. You can build your own with scavenged materials such as a five-gallon paint bucket or two-liter soda bottle, or you can buy a more formal design from Earth Box

Admission for the class is $45 for Huntington members and $55 for non-members. The Huntington is at 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino. Registration: (626) 405-2128.
