Inspired by the importance of Farrand’s pioneering work and a newly completed Cultural Landscape Report, BFGA and the National Park Service is embarking on a collaboration to restore this feature at Bellefield. The wild garden project will be phased in over a period of years, first addressing circulation issues that will enhance visitor interaction with the formal garden, specifically using the naturalistic plantings to link the formal garden with the Wallace Center and on to the extensive trail network throughout the Park.
