The non-profit Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Warren has been around since 1980, teaching amateurs and professionals the essential skills for designing and building sustainable structures.
Bob Ferris is the school’s Executive Director. Before he came to Yestermorrow in 2006, Ferris worked for many years in habitat restoration and conservation. Among other things, he helped reintroduce wolves to Yellowstone National Park and worked with endangered animals for the Defenders of Wildlife.
VPR’s Jane Linholm visited to the school. She spoke with him about how he sees the natural world interacting with design and interior space.
