Papercrete is an innovative way to keep paper out of the landfill and turn it into something beautiful. These papercrete troughs resemble planters made from stone but are much lighter in weight. Presenter Wendy Aycoth, Kent County Master Gardener, has graciously opened her home to make these troughs. You will need to bring rubber gloves, a box or bowl for your trough shape, and a molding tool for smoothing the cement. All other materials will be provided. Wear old clothes and bring a bag lunch to enjoy in the garden. Wendy will provide drinks. Call 730-4000 to register. Warning…papercrete can become addictive!troughs-222x160
