Living Willow Huts

Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n173 p84-86 Jan-Feb 2007
Living Willow Huts are inexpensive to make, fun to plant, easy to grow, and make beautiful spaces for children. They involve planting dormant willow shoots in the ground and weaving them into shapes that will sprout and grow over time. People have been creating similar living architecture throughout the world for centuries in the forms of living fences, gazebos, and garden sculptures. Now, folks are planting living willows in children's environments that grow into tunnels, domes, playhouses, and huts. In this article, the author presents the Living Willow Hut project at Syracuse University Education and Childcare Center in Syracuse, New York.
