Johnny Appleseed Organic Village

2021 ASLA Florida Planning + Analysis Design Award

The Johnny Appleseed Organic homestead is an assemblage of multiple tracts of land, totaling over 300 acres. Located in South Georgia on the border of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, Cadence led the master planning efforts for this Agritourism focused project. The master plan includes design elements which foster the objectives to restore and preserve agricultural lands, supply alternative sources of power, create educational opportunities to the public, and provide ecotourism experiences for guests. The working farm is currently testing and harvesting a variety of organic based and heirloom crops, and will operate as a supplemental food supply for the staff and visiting guests. Within close proximity to the farm parcel, Cadence designed a village of 25 small eco structures nestled within the native pine canopy and legacy chestnut trees, which provided food for early settlers on this historic site. Through additional regenerative agriculture practices, the master plan design works with the natural land to sequester carbon storage, increase soil water holding capacity, stop soil erosion, protect the purity of groundwater and establish conditions for crops to become more disease and pest resilient.
