Firmly Planted

You don't need a green thumb to cast a concrete planter and fill it with fragrant herbs. The NativeCast Kit comes with everything to do both at home, all year round. Made in Pennsylvania, the kits were inspired by larger scale concrete planters that NativeCast founder Ricky Giacco designs and hand casts for homeowners and landscapers. While concrete is known to be quite dense and heavy, Giacco formulated a lightweight, eco-friendly mix made with materials like sand, shells and pine needles indigenous to the mid-Atlantic region. This proprietary formulation makes pots that are modern looking and porous enough to let air and moisture access the roots. Perfect for people of all ages, the kits are affordable and portable. They include top quality basil, sage, and parsley seeds from Eden Brothers. Just mix, mold, plant and grow. Made in a facility where over 90% of all waste is recycled and reused, these kits make it easy to be green.

    Hi Tim, Great Question. The mold is for a single use . The kit includes all the materials for one planter @Tim

    Hi Tim. Love the idea. I am still confused about the "single use" wording. After I make one and plant an herb, may I use the container again after harvesting the first herb?

    Hi Kathy, The mold used to create the container is a single use. The eco-concrete container you make can be used over and over. Hopefully this a bit more clear @Kathy

    I'd like to do this project with my two young children. Can the mixture get on skin?
