It is a big flowerbox. The lower part is a 700L water tank topped with a flowerbox filled with soil. The children learn that it is made of 1OO% recyclable polyethylene, costless and ecologically perfect.
The Recupot is place to a rainy drainpipe from the roof. So this rainwater can be use to wash the floors and water the plants. The children can see during the year the seeds becoming wheat, then flour and finally bread. It is the same experience for the growing of a rose.
