The Oak Tree Collective seeks to meet design needs with the resources at hand. They facilitate community building projects that solve problems with ecological elegance.
You may have noticed the organic growth around Planet Roo over the past few years. Well, natural forces have been at work. Each year since the construction of the straw bale post office in 2008, a growing group of builders, artists, teachers, dreamers, have been gathering to shape an ever evolving Planet Roo.
The Oak Tree Collective has emerged out of the desire to realize the great potential this gathering of people we call Bonnaroo presents. Planet Roo has provided fertile soil for fun and creative collaboration, and after five years of continued fascination with the project, a collective has been formed. Come check us out.
This year our crew will be building a great northern gate to Planet Roo, bringing more shade to the solar stage, adding new lighting and finishes to the Post Office, and taking on whatever else may come up!
We’re especially excited to be partnering with Manchester Parks and Recreation Department. We’re working with local youth to create a bench from salvaged and natural materials, and integrating a curriculum on sustainability.
