Willow play houses installed as final finishing touch on residential playscapeRead More
We had the pleasure this spring of working with a local artist, Jillian Banks-Kong (http://www.jillianbanks-kong.com), on the creation of a bronze sculpture of a bear for a residential garden and children's outdoor play space. The piece was created as part of a dry creek water play area that includes a water-pump, climbing rocks, and bridge. In a month or two willow playhouses will arrive to finish off the piece.
After much anticipation, the bear was finished and ready to be installed this week. He now rests happily in his new home among the ferns at the edge of his very own creek waiting for his next fish to arrive.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of seeing Phase 1 of the Stanford Educational Farm officially open at the dedication ceremony. The fields were brimming with crops, the buildings glowed like beacons, smells wafted from the wood burning stove, and the stately oaks and campus made for a great setting on this warm Fall evening. The guests included the Dean, faculty, alums and current students from the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, donors, sustainable agricultural practitioners, Stanford's design and program management personnel and the design team.
It was a delight to see the project alive and celebrate with all of these wonderful folks.
After all the work this summer, Phase 1 of the Stanford Educational Farm is now finished. The greenhouses, garden beds, fields and orchards are ready for their first students. We can't wait for the first harvest next fall.
