Description

Setting up a full-service campsite in the taiga can be enormously costly. To lessen the financial strain, the non-profit organization in charge of this project called upon local entrepreneurs’ generosity. We agreed to donate the plants and labour required as a gift for the campsite’s opening.

We created a cold-weather vegetable garden which perfectly integrates with the yurt’s environment and architectural style. Large stones have been placed around the area, featuring moss harvested from the surrounding forest and low and ornamental native plants.
