Community charity

Willow Classroom Fun

The Willow Farm is located in a rural community where the environment stimulates creativity and art.  In additon to our family  supporting and volunteering in  our local schools,  we have been able to donate to other counties within the Bay Area.

After a project with The Children’s Discovery Museum, we were contacted by Wild Zones, www.wild-zone.net  whose mission is  to nurture a generation of youth who love the earth and love their own lives. We continue to donate to this organization and are thrilled that so many more children can experience the joy of imagination and nature. (more…)

Willow sculpture - Las Vegas

In 2009 The Willow Farm was selected by Design Solutions USA to create  two spectacular willow pumpkin vines as part of  an art installation in the palazzo waterfall atrium and the grand lobby of a  prominent Las Vegas casino. Each vine was 100’H and used more than 3000 lbs of willow woven over a steel frame. A slideshow of the project can be viewed at our Flickr account. http://www.flickr.com/photos/47620935@N08/sets/72157623917736781/
