Bountiful Earth, Inc. was established in late 2002. Within only 18 months, Chuck acquired a collection of over 80 varieties, which has now grown to well over 100 different varieties. Over time, the business has evolved. Chuck was inspired by his interest in Native American spirituality to begin making flutes in 2006. Chuck's fine flutes are crafted from bamboo and hardwoods, and include many types of flutes played around the world. We also carry primitive and world percussion instruments, including djembes and doumbeks. There's always something new at BOUNTIFUL EARTH! We now have available many hand crafted items and gifts made here at the shop by Chuck Theroux and Debbie Kerr, including vases, wind chimes, rain sticks, didgeridoos, bamboo drums and of course flutes of many styles.
At Bountiful Earth, we feel we are doing a service to our community as well as the world environment by providing items to our customers that are "Earth friendly" as well as being "Human Friendly".
Our emphasis is in non-invasive clumping bamboo varieties, although we carry a few bamboo "runners" for customers with plenty of property. Bamboo is the Earth's fastest growing woody plant. If you want to establish a quick barrier or screen, this is the plant for you. If you like shade but have fear of the Florida high winds, bamboo actually protects buildings rather than damages them. Bamboo doesn't fall like a large tree is apt to. Bamboo is also very "Earth friendly" due to the favorable oxygen carbon dioxide exchange. Bamboo is the most widely used plant in the world due to its versatility in the building and crafts fields. Its beauty is only matched by its usefulness. At Bountiful Earth, we have bamboos that grow from a one-foot ground cover to hundred foot giants. Check out our available list or our collection list for more information and pictures.
At this time, we are not shipping bamboo. Bamboo is available 5 days per week at the store - Tuesday -Saturday - 10am to 5 pm.
