Timpson Creek Farm

PRESENTED ON AUG 26, 2018
IN ATLANTA @ VOL 36

Through study, design, and implementation, we are capable of setting up food systems that mimic nature's flow, are easy to manage, work on nature's renewable engine, and house closed fertility loops that increase overall sustainability. "Making" these places where nature and production meet offer many rewards both felt on an individual/spiritual growth curve and on the greater community that have access to fresh food and experiences within nature's matrix. Darby Weaver shares with us about these fascinating systems in her presentation.

Students and faculty from the University of Tennessee’s College of Architecture and Design will present on the benefits of design-build education as illustrated by an innovative new building being created for Beardsley Community Farm in Knoxville—a non-profit urban demonstration farm promoting food security and sustainable agriculture. Design-build education through architectural design courses at UT enabled making a building that reinforces Beardsley’s mission. The new structure will operate as a teaching tool helping farm staff and volunteers more effectively engage the public about the benefits of local sustainable farming. It also creates significant public spaces for the benefit of the community at large.
