    I love the bridges and the use of the rain gutters for planting troughs. I would like to share that with my organic vegetable gardeners. They will ask me of course is the material toxic. Do you know?

    I hadn't explored that possibility in terms of eating the plants. Most of what these children will be planting will be just for the experience of playing in the dirt. The blog that I scored the idea from had herbs and winter greens planted in the gutters. I've gone back to the source to ask, and I will post whatever I find out.! I'm sure that you could certainly line the gutters if that was a concern.

    This was the source for her blog post on the gutters: http://juneauempire.com/stories/072508/nei_309624417.shtml Apparently, they used plastic gutters, which shouldn't present a problem

    It is a way cool idea! thanks for sharing. I may have to incorporate that into my talk at the Home and Garden Show. I will be sure to mention my source :)
