This is part of our ongoing work with South River Miso, Christian and Gaella Elwell, and the great folks at Natural Roots CSA next door. We’ve been helping with site planning, detailed design for gardens and plantings around the home renovation, miso business  functional operations, and permitting an access road to a new farm field across the river. (We had a great meeting with the local conservation commission to review our work in the wetland buffer and a stream crossing, and it looks like our permit will be approved.)
