The Re-scape project is an innovative plan to use the suburban landscape as a way to produce viable food crops.

This two day event will discuss the viability and the potential of this ecoligically responsible plan. We will be covering everything from the relationships and layout of plant species to promoting the project to a diverse audience.

Design and construct the man-made environment to be in harmony with the natural environment.

This is a project to develop a plan for transforming the typical american suburban landscape.  It involves converting a portion of the land that is now covered in grass into aesthetic, healthy landscapes of botanical and agricultural gardens, designed, maintained, and harvested by community-scaled organizations for the benefit of the homeowners and an ecological future.  The Rescape plan has the potential for several important contributions to contemporary society.  Beyond the advantages of creating a more stimulating local environment, this project proposes a plan that could provide the land required to grow crops necessary to bolster farming against foreseeable food shortages. There are also intrinsic economically viable business and software development opportunities that could be explored.
