DIY planter boxes with Habitat

Posted |

We're transforming old, unwanted pallets into charming, rustic planter boxes for your herbs, flowers, etc on September 20 from 1pm to 4pm. Want to join us?


This Do-It-Yourself project is hosted by Habitat's Carpenters Club and sponsored by Stone Bros. & Byrd.*

  • Not quite ready to commit, but excited to build? Be our guest with a $20 donation as admission; then sign up here.

Habitat will provide all of the supplies, tools, and instruction. Stone Bros. & Byrd will provide the greenery. They are celebrating their 100th anniversary in Durham with us by donating a dozen annuals to each DIY planter box builder!

*Due to the use of power tools, this event is for people 16 years or older.

Habitat Success Stories

Pearlie's home was so damaged that neighbors thought it was abandoned. Habitat partnered with the City of Durham to replace Pearlie's roof, a damaged wall, and exterior siding. Pearlie said, "It lifts my spirits. Habitat volunteers are beautiful people."
