Would you like to build a living willow feature in your garden, school playground or business? Living willow playgrounds are very easy to build, the whole family can be involved in the planning, construction and maintenance.
They are fast growing and easy to maintain... but best of all they are GREEN!

If you are considering a living willow structure your planting site must provide at least 1/2 day sun, must have access to a water source for weekly deep watering when planted and be away from septic systems and building foundations. Each deluxe kit includes everything you need to build your dome, tunnel, fedge or run, PLUS a free demonstration workshop with your purchase (for up to two participants). Living willow kits and rods are only available for pickup at the farm. The best time to plant is early spring, usually sometime in April. Available in Canada only.

If you are planning a large structure you can purchase willow rods for your own design.

Each deluxe kit comes with two spaces to attend our Living Willow Structure demo workshop. During the event we will show you, through a hands on demonstration, how to prepare your site, construct your structure, maintain and prune your willow. Living Structures will be built onsite by all of the participants. We also have several large structures growing on the farm for you to view.
