CONWAY — Tucked away down a quiet road, the Conway School of Landscape and Design is unassuming. Despite its modest location, the school is working hard to make a better future for humanity.“Fix what’s broken. Save what works. DESIGN THE FUTURE!” is boldly pasted on its  website — the school’s mission is to create a more sustainable future.The school in Conway offers a 10-month graduate degree program focused on teaching and exploring sustainable landscaping practices.On Friday, students from the school presented the projects they’ll be working on for the remainder of 2016. They ranged from “A Master Plan for Coastal Home,” in South Dartmouth by Allison Gramolini and Faren Worthington, to “A Landscape Plan for the Whately Historic Center,” by Warren Lee and Susan Schen.“Presentations take place three to four weeks from the end of each term, and offer an opportunity for student designers to get feedback from professional critics and from their project clients,” said Adrian Dahlin, director of admissions and marketing.Dahlin added that the events are fun, educational, and open to the public.“It’s a presentation with professional critics in the room,” Dahlin said. “This is a major source of input on the projects.”Students work with real businesses and needed projects, such as renovating an old mill site or designing a park for a community. They have a three-week deadline to complete their projects and give the clients printed design documents.Other presentations included “A Landscape Plan for Senior Housing” by Grant Kokernak and Oliver Osnoss, “A Master Plan for the FARM Institute” by Helmi Hunin and Max Madalinski, and “A Landscape Design for Mill 180” by Mike Conover and Max Ehrman-Shapiro.Final presentations will be given Friday at the school’s Easthampton campus.For more information, visit www.landscape.csld.edu/presentations-2016-spring-easthampton.
