Behind the Scenes at Schacht: The Harvest

Today brings the unofficial start to fall: the kids are back in school and the growing season is winding down.

Each spring, Schacht employees have an opportunity to choose a plot in our organic community garden. They can grow whatever they like, from colorful flowers to all sorts of vegetables. Everything is provided by Schacht, except for the plants.

This summer, Boulder has had a bit more rain than usual, and as a result everyone’s garden has thrived!

Please take a moment and enjoy the video below where we talk with some of our gardeners and to see the fruits of their labor!

Schacht Spindle

Schacht Spindle Company, Inc. was founded during the back-to-earth movement of the late 1960s and its accompanying craft resurgence. Their first loom was a simple tapestry loom, a version which they still make today. Over nearly 50 years, Schacht has developed a broad range of high-quality hand weaving and hand spinning tools, including their popular Cricket Loom and Ladybug Spinning wheel. Schacht’s mission is to create beautiful and well-designed products that enhance customers’ weaving and spinning experience through innovative problem solving, creative ideas, skilled woodworking and craftsmanship, and friendly, knowledgeable customer service. Schacht’s family-owned business is located in Boulder, Colorado.
