I want to thank Leslie Newman and Tim Celeski for sharing three young Western Red Cedar trees with me so I can share the wonderful attributes of this tree tomorrow with some extra special students at Bainbridge Artisans Resource Networks’ interim space, in Rolling Bay Washington. I especially want to thank my sweetheart and right-hand man, Paul West, for helping me by cutting down, sectioning, and hauling these beautiful materials home so I could speedily get them in the kids soaking pool. It is supposed to get to 83 degrees in this region of the Pacific Northwest, and I need all that juicy sap to stay in the bark for 24 more hours! Stay tuned, and I’ll let you see what these artistic students create! Cedar is a Wonderful teacher!
