"It's easy to make a new dog collar from your old one! Whenever Lila needs a new collar I just make her a new one reusing the hardware from her old one. Once you've done it a time or two it only takes about 15 minutes to make a new one...." click here to see tutorial

TOOLS:

sheet of plastic to protect carpet plastic base of pet cage 2 rectangular plant drip trays gravel, organic potting mix and garden soil rabbit safe herbs.

stone pavers and decorative rocks wooden stakes (for constructing the frames) plywood (for top of feeding station) drill saw rabbit food, feeding bowl and meadow hay.

one or more bunnies (preferably already litter trained! see: http://www.rabbit.org/faq/sections/litter.html for tips).

STEPS:

* Lay down plastic sheeting in a sunny corner of the house (so herbs will get enough light).

* Construct a rectangular wooden frame for the plastic base to sit on top of, leaving enough room to add a drip tray to each side (see in process shot).

* Drill a row of holes on each side of the base, aligned so that they will be on top of the drip trays.

* Add a layer of gravel to bottom of base, to improve the drainage. top up with a mixure of organic potting mix and garden soil.

* Plant herbs in rows above the drainage holes.

* Sit base on top of wooden frame.

* Use pavers to build steps leading into the garden and camouflage the front of the plastic base with decorative rocks

* Construct the main feeding station in the back corner by cutting wood into a triangle that fits into the gap and constructing a triangular wooden frame to prop it up to the same height as the base.

* Add food bowl with food and water to feeding station.

* Add hay to the front of the garden (this will help rabbit recognize it as their new litter tray).

* Add bunnies and marvel at your mini ecosystem, in which the rabbit urine and poops provide an excellent fertilizer/manure for the herbs and the herbs a tasty nibble for your bunnies (and yourself!). Excess fertilizer/manure can be collected from the drip trays / top of garden and used to feed you other plants!
