First in a series of earth furniture! Years ago, Allen saw an earth chair at a community garden in Portland, Oregon. He told me about it, and I’ve remembered it ever since. In March, a group of us made our very own earth chair, a first for all of us. We used the sod leftover from cutting the spiral wildflower path, and piled it up to form a chair shape. It turns out to be quite comfortable. We’ve now added an earth love seat, and have plans for an end table or two. The little kids across the street want to make an earth TV, which I think is a funny and ironic twist to the current debate on how much time kids spend inside plugged in.
