The Girl and The Fig And Ecowood Displays: Will work for food?

The Girl and The Fig and Ecowood Displays:  Will work for food?

You may remember a while back we were very excited to do a little custom project for, hands down, our favorite restaurant in Sonoma (the world?).  When the owner, Sondra Bernstein, called us to see how we might help with a new project, we were ready to lend a hand.  The Kickstarter project, Suite d, was to be "an unlikely place for uniquely fun times and culinary inspiration". 


We started with four massive barn doors made with our reclaimed Douglas fir beams (Tracy) 

during Phase One.  They cover up the industrial roll up door from the inside and when the outdoor patio was in use, they would open to provide passage between in the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Then we finished Phase Two with what would be termed the "movable feast bars".  These were designed and constructed to be rustic and versatile.  One side would be a serving buffet.  Turn it around and it can be used as a service bar.  Put them back to back and they are a two sided buffet.  Or you could create an "L" or a "U" get the idea!

btw....we bought the cooking class and will be sharing with our friends from Conscious Corners.  Looking forward to cooking up some farm fresh veggies and maybe a local fish or two.


Garden Harvest Donation presented

Presenting to the Executive Director, Jim Dasher were Don & Colette George  (standing in front of our EcoShelving!)

We were very happy to gather with our friends at Conscious Corners in Maryland, and present a donation to one of their chosen charity organizations, Garden Harvest.   

The mission of Garden Harvest is the alleviation of hunger & the improvement of nutrition of economically disadvantaged citizens worldwide.  They accomplish this by the establishment of community farms that teach people, of all ages & any ethnic background, the methods of organic and sustainable production of fruit, vegetables, eggs, & wool. In the near future they will also include milk & cheese.  The goal is for them to learn how to grow food for themselves & for others.  No food is sold and all extra food is donated to local food banks.  They provide the fresh and perishable foods that so many food banks are lacking.

It is the good folks at both of these organizations that make the work we do such a pleasure!
