Behind the Scenes at Thicket

IMG_1861

Today we thought we’d create a short photo essay taking you behind the scenes at Thicket – our local gardening center.  We showed up to create a quick video for our Kickstarter project but – as luck would have it – we were quickly hit with a classic Portland downpour.  Does this mean summer is officially over?

Here are some great shots of her space from the shoot:

We really like the recycled materials used to create this unique gardening center.  Note the blank chalkboard wiped clean by a few minutes of rain.

This gardening center took over a vacant lot and has transformed this space into a thriving neighborhood destination.

Adria Sparhawk, the owner of Thicket, has so many unique and wonderful plants; many I haven’t seen elsewhere.

Another unique plant in a very unique space.

Here’s a link to our Facebook page with a short video giving you an idea of how much rain came down on us:

And another short video (sideways – sorry about the iPhone malfunction) showing a cup filled by the downpour:

If you are in Portland, I highly encourage you to stop by and see Adria’s shop.  But be careful:  You can spend a lot of time looking at all of the amazing plants and garden accessories she has.  Oh, and bring an umbrella!
