Hurricane Sandy Tree Salvage Project Fundraiser
Hundreds of thousands of trees fell during Hurricane Sandy. With the sawlogs that we are salvaging from these trees we are milling thousands of board feet of lumber, eliminating tons of “waste” from our landfills, and filling a demand for local wood products without cutting down a single healthy tree.
Increasing severe weather events and the inevitable decimation of 7% of Orange County’s forest due to the Emerald Ash Borer will create an abundance of dying and downed trees. For us, that means continuous tree reclamation efforts for years to come, and the immediate need to grow our operations so that we can transport, process, store and distribute all of this wood.
We ask you for your financial support to help us get our small business to the next level. Our goal is to raise $23,000. 10% of the wood that we process goes back into community projects.

Brooklyn Magazine recently caught up with designer Derick Holt to talk about his trials and tribulations, and his foray into design in New York City.
Derick began his relationship with the Diner family through dishwashing yet quickly grew to all things design and identity.
Thank you for designing such a beautiful and original relationship along the way.

The boardwalk is gone. The Rockaways were devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
To help the cause, Abbie J. Zuidema is selling prints of her Rockaway Beach Map on Etsy for $35 a copy, plus $5 shipping.
100%-All proceeds from the sale of this map will go to the rebuilding of the Rockaways.
This is an archival print of the original watercolor painting of the Far Rockaway that was made for Edible Queens, Issue 12, Summer 2012.
Featured in “Best of the Boardwalk” this watercolor map showcases some of her most favorite people on the beach. Motorboat & the Big Banana, DiCosmos, Rockaway Taco, Rippers, Connolly’s, Veggie Island/And Coffee & Caracas.
“The Rockaways is special place for us. My husband Josh has been surfing out there for years. Better yet, it’s where his mom & dad fell in love. Janet & Harvey (his parents) spent summers out there with their families during its heyday. They stayed in the bungalows, hung out on the boardwalk & played on the beach.”
Printed on professional printing paper; heavy weight, archival and acid free 8.5 x 11

L’ Ecole Des Beaux Arts (LDBA) was started because even with a degree in fine art, I had difficulty in finding the instruction, information and tools I needed to continue to grow and become a better artist. I noticed that the same was true for my friends and neighbors, most of whom are also artists, innovators, and creatives. As I started a dialogue with them, the need became clear: we needed a kind of two-fold community institution. Yes, we needed place where we could obtain artist supplies and tools, but we needed it to include an open studios educational element – a space that would provide classes taught by local, community experts for adults and children alike. The response was overwhelming. People came out of the woodwork wanting not just to share their expertise, but wanting to continue their own educations by enrolling themselves and their children as well.
