Pear Hill Farm, Fayetteville, AR
The capstone project for my undergraduate degree was the design of an agricultural eco-community masterplan within the city limits of Fayetteville, AR, that acted as both a sustainable living demonstration area and a site of cultural preservation and interpretation.  I worked closely with local families and individuals interested in living in the community and non-profits to develop a collective vision.  The land, threatened by impending suburban development, was donated to a land trust in order to preserve its resources and arable potential and was the site of a historic farm, schoolyard, and cemetery dating back to the early 1800s.  The program included housing design using low-impact technology, historic buildings and orchards restoration, sustainable land management and harvesting practices, and various educational and interpretive areas that engaged the greater community, including a constructed wetland and aquaculture feature.  

I presented the project at the 8th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Arts and Humanities in January 2010, and the paper was published in the peer-reviewed conference proceedings.
