Introduction: Urban Greenhouse
First we have to collect some stuff :)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: BOM List
Go to a store/shop where they sell candy, like in the picture, and get
some boxes with transperant lid ( they will give it to you for free ) Collect some egg carton, or buy the one they sell at gardening store. They should not cost to much. At the same time, get som seeds :)
You can buy soil ( do not buy the cheepest ) or go into the woods with a shovel and a bucket and get it for free.
Step 2: Prepping
Wash all the boxes you got and cut out cartong, to fit in the boxes
Step 3: Soil and Seeds
Make sure that your soil is "fluffy" and not compact. Make a little hole with your finger and put a couple of seeds in it, and cover up with soil. Just a gentle push and finnish up with some water ( not to much )
Step 4: Finishing Up
Cover up the box with the lid ( if its very warm where you live, make some airhole ) Also mark the lid with a pen.
And now its just to wait and see/eat. I live in Norway and the summer are not as hot as they should be, so the first 2-3 weeks I take the boxes inside at nights.
HOT TIPS: Go to Aliexpress.com and look for seeds, very cheap and alot of diffrent sorts. (Some country do not aloud import of seeds, so do some resource before you order)
