Advice on container gardens

Posted by Spalding Hurst

July 2, 2021

Join the SCN Office of Ecological Sustainability in learning how to garden wherever you may be, as we learn from Sisters who are “starting small” by gardening in pots, containers, and on their balconies.

This video was made in conjunction with the Ecological Sustainability Committee’s guidance to educate the about the goal under Directive 4B, “to eat more plant-based and locally-grown produce, and to grow more kitchen gardens.” We hope that this video inspires you to start where you are in caring for our Earth!
