A Garden Party You'll Dig
Join us this Sunday for a time-honored rite of Spring, starting the garden. If you are on Maui, let's do it together; if not, carve out some time and do it with us from afar—we'll plant in solidarity to get this Spring growing!
- You need potting soil, seeds, a can, and 5.5" x 32" strips of Wrappily. (Of course any newsprint will do. Sadly, it just won't be as cute.)
- Invite some friends to join and make it a party!
- Using the can as a guide, roll the paper tightly around, about 3/4 of the way up the side of the can. Once finished, tuck in the remaining paper to cover the bottom of the can. If you prefer, reinforce bottom with a small piece of masking tape. Gently slide off can and voilà—a plastic-free planting container!
- Fill with soil and plant seeds according to instructions.
Water and watch grow.
- When it's time, plant your seedlings in the garden right in their 100% compostable container.
- Share your results with us using the hashtag #GrowWappily

Friends on Maui, come plant with us! Green thumbs, black thumbs, and everyone in between will have fun creating their personalized flat of garden starts in 100% compostable Wrappily. Co-hosted by the local food mavens at Edible Hawaiian Islands magazine, we'll enjoy a locally-sourced garden lunch, then dig-in to our planting work. Garden expert, Terry Huth, will be on hand for guidance and amazing advice for successful, organic gardening.
