2015 - Sara Pevaroff Schuh is a registered landscape architect who has volunteered with the Collaborative on projects ranging from a conceptual plan for a community open space for Hope Partnership for Education and a nature play toolkit for family child care providers and DVAEYC.
The name of Sara’s firm – SALT Design Studio—reflects her philosophy about landscape architecture. “Salt comes from the earth, you can’t survive without it,” she says. “It was once used as currency.”
“I was driven to practice by wanting to challenge the notion that landscape is an extra. My firm’s goal is to reposition landscape as the thing you cannot live without.” Fortunately, Sara notes, perceptions of landscape architecture’s worth have changed dramatically since she began her practice. Landscape architects have been increasingly getting significant projects that involve infrastructure.
