Risen from an awareness of the methodology behind ecologically conscious farming, and an exposure to everyday life in urban historic Savannah, came an opportunity to marry the two in a dynamic way. The activity of the city context blending harmoniously with a normally rural condition will drive the process for a project that strives to attain comprehensive function while educating the public. Through the tactile act of purchasing fresh produce paired with direct connection to that food's derivation, a compelling connection is reborn within our depth of human nature. Social interaction and life on the farm will be brought into the vacant and pitted sites of Historic Downtown Savannah, thus redefining and repurposing the relics of this city.
