Architects Create Unique Structures for Sukkot Festival at Former Ecke Ranch
Several hundred people attended the event organized by the Leichtag Foundation, which is building a cultural and community resource for the San Diego region and the Jewish community on the former Ecke Ranch property.
Approximately 800 people attended the event, inspecting each sukkah, sampling local farm-to-table cuisine and listening to live music. Encinitas city council member Tony Kranz, who recently visited Israel, welcomed the crowd.
"Sukkah Earth" was created by Daron Joffe of Farmer D Organics and Kurt Buxton of Valley Crest Design Group. The walls were made of living lettuce from Go Green Agriculture, which raises the lettuce using hydroponic techniques on the former Ecke Ranch property.
During the festival, attendees were encouraged to vote for their favorite of the three structures. The tally is online, and Sukkah Water is in the lead.
