Hypertufa Pot Workshop

The Monroeville Garden Club met on Thursday, September 8th, at 1:00 p.m. at the home of Pat Hornady. Members participated in a workshop led by Louise Barnes making hypertufa pots . Hypertufa (pronounced hyper-toofa) is the term used for a type of artificial stone. It's made by mixing water to equal parts of peat moss, perlite, and Portland Cement. Each member brought common household containers to use as molds to fill with the hypertufa mixture and then took them home to cure.
