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.


  1. Old sandstone is so nice, it’s too bad a lot of places fail to realize the great benefit of it and are tearing down their old sandstone buildings/houses/schools to make room for new high-tech buildings.

    Such is the price of our modern society, if there is any good out of that. Almost ALL of that stone is recovered and used in other new exciting projects that usually do a good job of honoring the stone.

  2. This blog is very nice and very information to us. I glad to meet you.

    I appreciate you taking the time to comment and the kind words, hope you drop by often and contribute to a discussion or two.
