Link Love: Earth Day

A few links for Earth Day. Stalk Bicycles are a sustainably built bicycle made in San Francisco out of locally grown bamboo. The surprisingly versatile material is not only earth-friendly, but can be sculpted to beautiful proportions. Stalk bikes stand out for their attention to detail, craftmanship and unforgettable aesthetic. Read more here.



Using a dissected old shipping crate and scrap lumber, gardening blog, Far Out Flora made this DIY Succulent Table earlier this year for their backyard patio. Click here to see more.



Willi Galloway scores these wooden vintage crates at an estate sale to use as planter boxes for her new veggie garden. See more.

I can't get enough of those packing wooden boxes. They always make stuff put in, on, or on top of cooler. They seem a little scarce out here in SF area, and I highly recommend snatching up any that can be found in yard / estate sales. Happy Earth Day all. Matti
