Adam Cenerelli is the local craftsman, dad and school teacher behind Port Jeff Planters. He said, “There are no planters made specifically for kids that I can find so I decided to design my own. I started gardening with my grandfather as a little kid and they are some of my best memories. I do the same with my son. My mission when I started making this planter box was to get people doing something outdoors with their kids. Kids love growing things. My planter can do a lot. It also encourages healthy eating habits. If kids grow it they are more likely to eat it. “

Below are pictures of Adam’s son using the kids planter.

I highly recommend buying this planter for your child(ren). My daughter loves watching her strawberries grow in this beautiful handmade cedar planter box which is the perfect height for little gardeners.

“The cost of the planter is $100. It’s made out of all cedar, which is expensive but there are great benefits to it. Cedar will last about 15 years. Termites and carpenter ants won’t touch it. It has a natural toxin in it that bugs don’t like. I also use all stainless steel screws and nails, which again are expensive but are needed with cedar. My planters will last 10-15 years no problem. There are no similar products like it on the market says, Adam.”

Dimensions of the planter are 24″L x 10″W x 18″H.
