Grown in west-central Alabama by retired Anglican Bishop, Edward Whatley who read an article which stated that those who practice the Shinto religion in Japan have a single piece of square bamboo in their prayer corner. Research and reading led Bishop Whatley to discover that the Japanese pioneered the technique of squaring bamboo centuries ago, but they generally stopped making it in the 1920’s. Nowhere online or in books could he find anyone who currently squares bamboo. Hence, he set out on a journey to form his own. A Japanese friend took an interest in his project and assisted Bishop Whatley in locating the formula. So now Bishop Whatley “squares” his own bamboo. He has found that Giant Henon Gray and Vivax, of the 8 varieties he grows, work best, though he is also experimenting with black bamboo (P. nigra). Last year he built and set out over 100 frames. This season he will set out some 200 or more frames, with each frame being used 2 or 3 times in the season. Bishop Whatley also makes Harajuku lights and “crooked hiking sticks”. Why Use Bamboo?
