Revision Division planters help define a community gathering space

As many of you know, Community Food Co-op has opened their eagerly-awaited new storefront for their deli on the corner of Holly Street and Forest in downtown Bellingham. The Co-op asked if our Revision Division could donate and build some planter boxes to help define their large, south-facing patio outside dining area – and we were happy to help our long-time partners!

Community Co-op planters

Our designer/builders built two planters of salvaged materials: 5 feet wide, 4 feet deep, 3 feet high, with strong castor wheels for moving. Cloud Mt. Farm Center sponsored the plants for the containers. Mercantile Head Assistant, Jade Flores remarked “They have really helped turn the patio into a welcoming place for our community to spend time, congregate, and eat healthy food together.” We are proud to have played a small part in helping them define a space for gathering around good food. Check them out at the deli’s Grand Re-opening this Friday, December 4th, 5:30-10pm in coordination with the December Art Walk. More specifics about the event can be found on the Co-op’s Facebook page. See you there!
