How to Make an Easy Vertical Garden & Word Search!

Hello Young Warriors,

The best tasting herbs are grown at home.  A few green herbs are: parsley, cilantro, basil, dill, mint.

On page 58 in The First Element, Green strongly influences the heart.  As the middle color of the spectrum, the balance and harmony, green helps alleviate tension.  Green imparts a feeling of renewal, freshness and optimism.  Positive qualities associated with Green are generosity, humility, and cooperation. ~Dr. Tae Yun Kim

Here’s an Easy way to make your very own Vvertical-bottle-garden3ertical Herb Garden:

Easy Vertical Bottle Garden

Supplies:

  1. 3+ plastic water bottles (2 liter water bottle)
  2. Potting soil (Miracle Grow)
  3. A pair of Scissors
  4. Lettuce seeds or Herb seeds
  5. A Glue Gun & Glue stick

How to Instructions: 

  1. Recycle your plastic water bottles. Make sure they are the same size.
  2. Remove the labels.
  3. With a pair of scissors, make a hole through each screw-on bottle top lid so that water can drip from one bottle down to the next.
  4. With a pair of scissors, cut the base of the second bottle so the neck of the first bottle can fit into the second bottle.  Do this step with each bottle.
  5. Use a glue gun to glue your bottles together.
  6. With a pair of scissors, cut an opening in the side of the bottles for the seedlings to grow through.  This will allow your plants to grow out the side of the bottle and be picked.
  7. Fill each bottle half full with potting soil.
  8. Plant 3 lettuce seeds or herb seeds in the dirt of each bottle.
  9. Hang the bottles in a sunny location (6 hours of sunshine per day) sunny window, or balcony, or fence.
  10. Cut a hole in the top bottle base.
  11. Water the top bottle and watch the water drip down to the remaining bottles.
  12. An empty bottle at the very bottom of your bottle garden can be added to collect any excess water. When full you can reuse this water and start the process trickling down once again.
  13. Be patient – in 1-2 weeks your lettuce or herb seeds will sprout and grow into plants that you can pick and eat.
