Honoring 40 creative years, SCAD Back40 is a sustainable urban farm featuring an apiary that offers a haven for bees and pollinators, fresh produce and community enrichment through education. SCAD Back40 provides regular donations to Second Harvest of Costal Georgia, as well as an observation area on-site for schools and organizations.
The 3-D printed sculpture The Butterfly Gate at the farms entrance is designed by SCAD foundation studies professor Sam Norgard in collaboration with fellow SCAD foundation studies professor Dawn Peterson. Calling forth the butterfly’s exquisite beauty and profound metamorphosis, the gateway serves as a provider of hope and invites visitors to interact with the sculpture’s symbols of transformation.
