The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson.
Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.
Rick, I am loving the sound of your workshop and can’t wait to see more details. There’s nothing more pleasing to me than the “thunk” sound of a stone landing in the spot it’s meant to be.
Enough salivating over the works of folks like Dan Snow and Andy Goldsworthy. Time for me to learn!
These stones look “newer” than “older”. I notice the great variation in size and shape. The moss is thin. How far was this from a road? Is it native stone? What do you think? I would like to have 20 to 30 yards to use.
I’m looking forward to seeing your photos and comments form your seminar.
