Inspired by the awesome rooftop gardens I’ve been peeping lately, I’ve been trolling my neighborhood asking local business owners for containters they’re throwing out that I might be able to repurpose as planters. Specifically I’m on the hunt for the styrofoam boxes that fish are kept in for deliveries. I’ve heard these are great for roofs– they’re light, easy to drill drainage holes in, and are insulating.
