Build a Cob Oven
Sarah Frances and Russ Henry will make a pizza oven (Rocket Stove) for you! These are produced with ‘natural’ material called cob which is a combination of clay, sand, straw and water. Most people are familiar with the brick form of this called adobe. Cob will yield visually stunning and highly functional bread/pizza ovens. Here are three reasons you need a Cob Oven:
1) Cob is a pleasure to make. For those of us who grew up peeling glue off our skin, there’s nothing quite like mixing cob with your feet. It’s also something that everyone from little kids to skeptical adults can do.
2) In a world where plastic takes up a lot of space it feels great to build something using materials that could go straight back into the earth where they came from without causing a lick of harm.
3) Cob lends itself to beauty. It is rare to come across a material in this world that is so structurally sound and also so fluid and sculptural.

Community Design Forum
Is your block club, church group, or office place ready to go green?
In this time of shrinking budgets we need to recognize the assets in our communities and help them grow into a sustainable future!
Community Design Forums are meetings where folks come together to create action plans for moving forward with changes that positively effect their community¹s environment. By sharing needs, knowledge, and ideas communities get to know the power within their ranks and discover ways to help grow their green ideas. Facilitated by Giving Tree Gardens owner, Russ Henry, these forums bring together his skills as a professional Earth-Friendly Landscaper, and a volunteer Restorative Justice Facilitator. Russ sits down with consultation attendees and asks them to share their concerns, ideas, efforts, and knowledge with each other so that communities can not only draw from his experience in the garden and landscape, but more importantly, attendees learn about each other’s skills and abilities.
