Dell Computer uses bamboo in packaging

I thought this was pretty cool. Dell Computer is using crushed bamboo to make protective cushions for its computers to protect them from damage instead of using foam or paper-based protective cushions. Best of all they are harvesting the bamboo from managed forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) which has a pretty rigorous certification program that promotes sustainable forest management and harvesting.

When is the next Open House?

Thanks to all the really nice people that came to my two Bamboo Open Houses on October 31 and November 14. Met lots of people that appreciate bamboo and had a good time teaching more about bamboo and all its benefits in the garden.

The big question I have been getting is - When is the next Open House?

Answer: I am planning the next Open House in March 2010 to kick off the spring season. If you want to be notified when the date is set, I highly recommend signing up for our e-mail list, the black box to the right of my web page -

In the meantime, I go back to how I was selling bamboo before, by appointment. So, if you really want that special bamboo plant now, give me a call at (916) 300-6335 or e-mail me at I am available by appointment Saturdays and Sunday and every other Friday (next Friday off is 11/20).

Thanks again for all the support, looking forward to more encounters with all the fellow bamboo aficionados.
