I added this text to my website homepage to underscore the impact that supporting local resources has on the resilience and vitality of the community. I plan to post more about regenerative work in the near future.
A sustainable community is best served by acting and trading locally. The cornerstone at ARC Design is to increase growth in the community by using local resources in our design projects. ARC is an acronym for Art, Resource and Craft. In the spirit of the British Arts and Crafts movement in Victorian England, we have developed relationships with local artisans in a networked guild that encourages collaboration in the design and building process. The arts and crafts connect us to our cultural and regional diversity.
