Grace Farms

Join Grace Farms Foundation, Edwina von Gal, an East Hampton-based landscape designer and founder of the Perfect Earth Project, and the Connecticut Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects for a convening to renew commitments to human rights and sustainable ecosystems in landscape design and land care. This full-day event will feature panels, tours, walks, lunch and breakout discussions with tools for establishing a new paradigm to create biodiversity-positive, nature-based solutions in our landscapes, installed with sustainable materials free of forced labor and child labor. Here’s a preview of the day’s events (with more to come): Join guided walking tours with Dennis McGlade and Eve Kootchick of Olin Studio and learn about the landscape design vision and restored native meadows at Grace Farms. Hear from Warrie Price, Founder and President of The Battery Conservancy, about the conservancy’s model commitment to chemical-free and sustainable ecosystems throughout its vast perennial gardens, lawns, urban farm, bike paths, and harbor vistas. Learn about forced labor associated with common material choices in the built environment from Luciana Varkulja, architect and urban designer from São Paulo, Stone Creek Quarry, and more. Hear from speakers including James and Hayes Slade, of Slade Architecture, and others. Explore techniques you can put into practice immediately for native, pollinator, and pesticide-free landscaping with Edwina von Gal. Close with a garden tea in the orchard of the SANAA-designed Plaza.
