Introduction | The Team | The Process | Key Findings | The Opportunites

 

In the summer of 2009, Blithewold issued a request for proposal (RFP) for a Master Plan to create "a roadmap for moving forward responsibly, to fulfill the organization's mission." A multidisciplinary team led by Ann Beha Architects was selected in December 2009 and began work in February 2010.

 The Master Plan considered both the physical structure of the site and the philosophical, administrative and financial framework required to sustain it. Work began with research in the Archives and interviews and assessments of the site, structures and organization of Blithewold. More than fifteen workshops were held over eighteen months with staff, trustees and distinguished advisors, as well as volunteers, neighbors and the public. These clarified needs and concerns and provided an opportunity for all to dream about what Blithewold could offer 10 to 20 years from now.

    Suddenly it seems like it won’t be too long before we see the ground again… Fingers crossed. Is winter on its way out of your garden too?
  • Gratuitous snow (Mar 06, '15)
    I’m getting awfully tired of posting snow pictures (are you sick of seeing them?) but every time we have gotten dumped on, it has been too pretty not to get the camera out. This last snowfall came without wind (here) and stuck like cotton to every twig. lovely. But enough is enough. We’re hoping, like we did the last […]
