A display designed and produced for Shelburne Farms for use in their Farm Barn learning and educational installation. The display spent six months as an installation in the ECHO Science Center in Burlington,
All visible wood is from harvested lumber within the Shelburne Farms property. Each of the five "roots" is an interactive children's play area. Actual bark, rough sawn lumber and "tree cookies" (trunk sections) are part of six species (ash, red oak, maple, white pine, cherry and butternut) that comprise the sides of the "trunk". Three take-apart benches in the form of a fox, rabbit and deer are a big hit with the children.
