Woven Roots Farm is a thriving family-run, no-till farm that provides nutrient-rich food and valuable educational services to its surrounding community. However, the farm lacks the infrastructure to accommodate classes, vehicles, and farm equipment while preserving the farmers’ privacy and maintaining valuable ecological function of the land. Devan Arnold ’17 and Jason Hurd ’17 addressed these issues by defining areas of use that would determine land management. They recommended mitigating erosion and drainage issues with a series of swales, retention basins, and cross-drains; relocating parking to accommodate more vehicles without compromising privacy or causing extra burden on the environment; and clustering public-facing activities to keep a helthy separation between public and private life.
