The Dinner Bell Rings: Eat Your Yard
Created by: Cascadian Edible Landscapes
Designed by: Michael Seliga-Soulseed and Eric Higbee
This edible garden was made for fun. You can plunk out a tune on an arbor made with wire strings and turnbuckles, placed on top of upside-down water troughs, which act as a sounding board for the strings. It didn’t matter if the player was a child or an adult; almost everyone stopped to play the musical arbor.
A Volkswagen bus was turned into a chicken coop. A walk through through this edible garden inspires all of us. An edible garden doesn't have to be a boring one.
Now if I could turn my own arbors into musical instruments, all would be perfect in my world—just go to the garden, tune up my turnbuckles, and play my favorite tunes.
