A Make It, Take It Workshop on sustainable hypertufa will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 2 at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, 2655 South Park Ave., Buffalo.

General Public-$30
Members – $27

Hypertufas are very popular in the gardening scene. They are planters made from aggregates bonded together using Portland cement and can be molded into any shape or size. They are unique planting containers that are porous and a great environment for plant growth. In this workshop, participants will create their own hypertufa using a more sustainable mixture.

This is a messy workshop and organizers ask participants to wear appropriate clothing. Participants must also bring one container to mold their hypertufa, no larger than 12 inches by 16 inches (dishpans work great). You may also wish to bring long dishwashing gloves and a dust mask. All other materials to make the planter will be provided.

This onsite class will be held on the Botanical Gardens campus. Plants and soil are not included.
