This year-round indoor planter comes equipped with everything you’ll need to start growing, just add water and set in a sunny window. Includes Certified Organic Seeds. Designed to be reused. Awesomely assembled in the USA. #eco #ecofriendly #sustainable #gardening #garden #planter #shopsmall #shoplocal #green #masonjar #berkeley #ucberkeley #california #shoptheelmwood
