Abstract:
When George Vanderbilt chose Frederick Law Olmsted, the nation's most famous landscape architect, to design his grounds at Biltmore Estate, the two men differed over the direction of the project. Olmsted wanted an arboretum; Vanderbilt wanted a park. They eventually settled on restoring the forests and setting aside some lands for gardens. Olmsted died in 1903. One hundred years later his dream of an arboretum was realized with the construction in Asheville of the North Carolina Arboretum.

Abstract:
An inherited farm in the town of Godwin synthesizes old and new for the benefit of its residents and the community. The current residents continue the farmhouse tradition, carried out in this Sampson County dwelling by Tom Jackson’s great-grandfather, albeit with a modern day twist. Jackson Farm’s organic offerings, identified by the author as niche crops, include herbs, edible flowers, and fruit trees. Other offerings are a retreat style guesthouse and backdrop for weddings.
