from the garden

Here are our humble beginnings of the Foerstel Community Garden. As you may remember, not too long ago, we moved into a building here in the Linen District. The main rehabilitation work has been focused indoors, and now that it is spring, we are excited to turn our efforts outside.
Above is a shot of our raised beds with their drip systems in place. The beds still need leveling, weed block, and mulch around them. We are hoping to get them planted in the next week with veggies, herbs and flowers and are excited to show the “after” photo here on the blog. As well as enjoy the veggies with our office and surrounding neighbors.

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
