All you need is a small amount of vertical space around a balcony or an open window which can hang or store a vertical array of drink bottles that can grow all your herbs and lettuce easily. Recycle as many of your plastic drink containers.
Give markers, colored pencils, and crayons a travel-friendly container (not like those cardboard boxes that tear and fall apart). The bottle exterior gives it structure, while colorful zippers makes it sealable. Get the tutorial at Make It
