Exteriorscapes ’Eye of the Beholder" display featured a salvaged claw foot tub and glass shade planters, among other antique objects. I especially like the bathmat!

Titled "A Family’s Little Farm in the City," this display by NW Bloom EcoLogical Landscapes and Seattle Tilth demonstrates a "closed loop" system employing composting, rain harvesting, and solar power as well as raised beds made from various recycled materials and urban livestock. It was sweet and quite a hit with the kids.

Seattle’s Urban Farm Company created "Crops for Clunkers," an old truck re-purposed as a farm-on-wheels, with chickens up in the front of the cab, a fruit tree emerging from the hood and plenty of organic vegetables spilling from the bed and sides.

The Skybridge area held a group of small-scale container and planter displays that were fun and silly.
