Hosta College Vending.......


The third weekend of March each year the Great Lakes Region Hosta Society hosts an event called "Hosta College" in Piqua, Ohio. Five to six hundred avid gardeners gather at the event to socialize, attend a hosta auction, eat, and to listen to volunteer teachers share their area of expertise. One of the main gathering spots during the event is the "Vending Area". This year we had a bumper crop of papercrete containers to sell and sell we did. You can see the results of our sales in the before picture above and the nearly finished picture below. 


 A special thanks to all our customers! We will see you all at the next hosta event somewhere this Summer or next Spring at the 2014 "Hosta College".

A customers Project..........

One of the most satisfying parts of our business is to see or hear about our students or customers experiences with their papercrete creations. This is a picture from Beth & Dave in Northeast Ohio who purchased a tub planter in early Spring 2012 and created this miniature landscape using their plant material and treasures. A nice design using a wide variety of shapes and textures, tasteful accessories, all the while maintaining a standard of scale. I would consider this an absolute success!   It looks like there is a golden retriever lover in both real life and garden accessories.
Beth took the papercrete class this year at the Hosta College in Piqua, Ohio so I expect to see a bevy of 2013 projects to develop as warmer weather arrives.............
