BRICK – Make your very own self-watering planter at this free workshop!

  The Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority (Brick Utilities) will be hosting a free workshop on June 9, 10 a.m.-12 p.m., at the Brick Reservoir. Shari Kondrup from Brick Utilities will teach you all about self-watering planters as well as the type of potting mix and plants that are best suited for them.

  Participants will also learn how to construct their own self-watering planter from a five gallon bucket. Each participant will be provided a five gallon bucket planter, instructions, and materials provided free of charge.

  If you are looking for an easy and conservative way to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers in areas with limited space, self-watering plants are the perfect solution.

  The workshop is free but registration is required. To register, contact Shari Kondrup at 732-701-4282 or

  This presentation is part of Brick Utilities’ “Weekend at the Reservoir” educational program. Weekend at the Reservoir is a free community education program being sponsored by Brick Utilities which focuses on local water resources, particularly the importance of the Metedeconk River and Barnegat Bay to the region, and how to conserve water.
