Inventor in national magazine again

The work of a Marquette artist and inventor has turned up in the second consecutive issue of a national magazine.

For years, Earl Senchuk has been creating concrete trees.

They look like the real thing, complete with live flowers and a built-in watering system for the flowers.

The trees have attracted the interest of Farm Show magazine.

It has a story in its latest issue on a method Earl has developed of allowing people to start their own businesses by producing the trees.

Earl’s Yoopertopia indoor greenhouse was on the front page of its last issue.

These two instances aren’t the only times an invention of Earl’s has been featured in Farm Show.

A 1998 issue included a story on the Germinator portable and collapsible greenhouses that Earl was manufacturing at that time.

Farm Show has been published every other month since January 1977, and Earl says it has about 250,000 readers spread across the U.S. and Canada.
