The Elm Tree Story Booth

Hey everyone! I am loving this summer as I find myself in the midst of constructing the Elm Tree Story Booth; a ten-foot, hand-built, elm tree shaped phone booth commissioned by the Natural Heritage Project, and retrofitted with a digital recording device; open for public discourse on personal interactions with nature. This project is precisely why I built my workshop; stop by anytime this month to get a sneak preview.

The Elm Tree Story Booth will be headed to the AZ Gallery to debut during the With the Grain exhibit, then make its way to the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) on October 1st, 2019 to record the stories of residents living and working within the organization’s watershed district. The Natural Heritage Project & the University of St. Thomas are also developing a touring schedule for the booth along the Mississippi river with the intent to better understand how the community interacts with the river.

Watch Closely, 2019

Welcome to Standing Cedars Workshop! As you may have noticed, we are in the early stages of development. Fret not, we have some exciting adventures planned for 2019 and we can’t wait to share our progress.

The first step will be launching the gift shop! We love wood, and we love handmade. There’s also something great about adding that little extra charm to life. Perhaps it’s that tiny hand-carved spoon resting in your sugar bowl or that old cutting board you couldn’t live without. Whatever you fancy, expect it to be made by our hands and from our land.

Next, the real fun begins! We are working diligently to develop the most practical, sustainable, and rugged campers; chock-full of thoughtful design solutions you won’t want to travel without. We’ve made it a point to draw from our travel experience and our dedication to living within nature responsibly and comfortably.

We are very excited to bring you Standing Cedars Workshop in 2019, subscribe below for our monthly newsletter if you’d like to follow along; we promise not to over-send but we will try to entertain and amaze. Cheers to an exciting new year for everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to visit us!
