At the Farm: See our new picnic tables!

August 9, 2010

Here at the Farm, we recently celebrated the arrival of our new picnic tables, designed and built by Ted Esselstyn, who was so nice to share some photos of the table-making process with us.

The wood for the tables is local…very local: two red oak trees across the street from the Farm, which were sick and endangering the building they stood next to, were harvested for the new picnic tables. Ted milled the trees with the YSFP’s help, and created beautiful and functional furniture out of what would have just become another pile of mulch.

Check out the slideshow from tree to table — it’s a great reminder of how great it can be when we go local not just for food, but for other services as well.
