Spotlight On Design: Ferguson Farm, On The Boards

Jan 4, 2018

Consilium Design, in partnership with Real Earth Design, is honored to be a part of the renovation of EarthDance Organic Farm School. This is a special project that allows us to apply our expertise in storm water management, rainwater strategy and land planning.

As an ever-growing peri-urban agriculture organization, Earth Dance Organic Farm School requires a greater capacity for accommodating people.  The popularity of the Farm School has increased, as well as their ability to host larger events, offer after school programs, field trips and other community programs.

Car parking volume is an integral part of the improvement plan. Through our design, new parking areas are integrated into the ecological function of the farm watershed, in addition to the social capacity that allows for more inclusive, on-site parking.

Roads, fields and buildings that were once subject to flooding from storm water runoff are now part of an extensive rain garden that absorbs, channels and utilizes the flow for potable uses such as irrigation of crops, growth of the newly implemented parking lot shade trees, flood protection and local water quality.

As visitors and aspiring farmers meander along with farm roads, paths and runoff, the agroecological work that happens here will be evident upon first step.

We are excited to begin construction of this beautiful project in Spring of 2018.
