An Evolving Classroom

The donor wall at Casis Elementary is finally in!  Elaine and Burton visited today to check the progress and were delighted to see how much the vines have taken to the structure. We installed these dowels in part to look as though the classroom had been wrapped in string by a child, but the intent was that they might support fruiting vines so that the structure might also act as a vertical extension of the garden. We were pretty stunned to see how it is working out.

The sign is lovely (largely designed by Elaine). We’ll post pictures when it has been painted.
