WATER BASINS FOR BEES & BIRDS Saturday May 18, 9am to 12pm, @ Fairfax Backyard Farmer
Craft your own Hypertufa water basin for your garden, and support your local Bees and Birds! Hypertufa is a method European method used by alpine gardeners in the 30's, where concrete mortar, sand and coir fiber are cast to create a stone-like structure with the look and feel of ancient sculpted rock. Hypertufas work to convert any backyard into an oasis for birds and pollinators in your area -- and for beekeepers, this water basin will supply the gallon/day requirement colonies consume during the dry California summer and fall months!
This hypertufa mixture is an affordable medium for crafting garden decorations, pots and sculptures that are natural-looking and lightweight. Whether you design a smooth, modern bowl or a rustic, free-form shape, your basin will be a uniquely designed piece of art to be enjoyed by people, bees and birds alike!
Joe Triglia Tufarock Design
My name is Joe Triglia. I am an artist, designer, avid gardener and small business owner residing in West Sacramento California. I started working with different blends of concrete to develop unique vessels for my growing collection of succulents & cacti. My handcrafted pottery and succulent arrangements really resonated with folks so I began sharing them with the public at craft festivals and farmers markets. You can now find them at Nurseries, Florists, Grocery Stores and other locations throughout the Sacramento area.
