During the Spring Semester 2014 a team of BAC students worked on a project for Meetinghouse Farm under the supervision of Ellen Merritt, a BAC faculty member and former Meetinghouse Farm Director. In this Gateway project, “Reviving Working Landscapes”, students conducted a thorough analysis and documentation of the landscape and existing structures, produced schematic options for a master plan, including proposed designs for the central yard and recommendations for new plantings and vistas, and assessed possibilities for utilizing sustainable technologies.  

The Farm appreciates this contribution of time and expertise and has already begun implementing some of the BAC recommendations.
