On the final day we set the installation up in Stephenson's Square, Norther Quarter. With the aim to engage with the public and have all the plants taken home. By the end of the day we were successful and took the installation back to Hulme Garden Centre to be erected there for the foreseeable future.

Myself and David were tasked to create the eco friendly plant pots from recycled jars and milk bottles. In the glass workshop we did this by carefully drilling holes in the base of the jars as to allow for drainage.

After conversing with Hulme Garden Centre we decided on a final idea for an installation and set about building it. The installation would be created out of used wooden pallets to act as shelves where people can take their own eco plant pots and start their own eco garden. As well as an info graphics wall with interesting facts to motivate the public to go green.
