About 601 Tully

Check out our new website! 601Tully.syr.edu

601 Tully is a center for engaged practice in Syracuse, NY developed by artist and professor Marion Wilson with a rotating collaborative team of 54 students and neighbors and Anda French of French 2Design. It's a site for meaningful exchange between artists, community members, and scholars in the co-production of culture.

601 Tully includes a contemporary art space, a public events space, a bookstore, a teaching garden, and Recess Cafe West.

In 2009, Wilson purchased the condemned two-story home and local drug hub, and throughout five semesters, Wilson's design/build class re-zoned, designed, renovated and now sustains the physical and programmatic aspects of 601 Tully. The collaborative team has consisted of artists, architects, environmentalists, Fowler High School students, Green Train Workforce, neighbors, and the occasional passerby.

601 Tully is made possible by the generous support of the Syracuse University School of Education, The Kauffman Foundation, The Near West Side Initiative, Imagining America, Home HeadQuarters Inc., Say Yes to Education, and National Grid.

Bamboo Plant Barriers

Question: Is There a Way of Containing Bamboo Plants?
One way to "play it safe" when growing bamboos is by containing them through the use of bamboo barriers....

That is, many people eager to grow bamboo but worried about its potential to spread engage in some preventive maintenance before planting. They sink 40 mil plastic barriers into the ground all around the bamboo plants, effectively "fencing" them in. Bamboo barriers should run 30" deep; also make sure a couple of inches of bamboo barrier extend above the surface.

Whether it's because you're sure you have a clumping variety and/or because you've installed such a bamboo barrier, now you're confident about containing bamboo plants, right? Now it's time to look at the other end of things: How do you get bamboo plants to grow well for you? That's the subject of the next FAQ..
