The Post and Courier featured an article this past Sunday on the native plant restoration work going on at Mepkin Abbey.  REMARK has had the opportunity to be a part of this restoration and several other projects at Mepkin Abbey and JR Kramer was quoted in the article.  You can read the full article at:  http://postandcourier.com/news/2010/apr/25/growth-renewal/ . Below is an excerpt from the article.

“The native plant project depends on many volunteers, but landscape architects who specialize in native plants also have worked on it.  JR Kramer of REMARK studio in North Charleston designed a memorial to the Charleston firefighters who died in 2007′s Sofa Super Store fire.  The memorial, which is among the broomsedge in the meadow, is Kramer’s interpretation of a council ring, nine blocks, one representing each firefighter.  Visitors can sit there and place flowers.  Kramer, who specializes in natives, also says those who see the refrectory garden near the cafeteria can witness the restoration done there.  The invasives have been removed, and the new growth is evident.  But keeping the invasives out is an ongoing effort, not something that is done and finished.  There always is something going on, Kramer says.” by Wevonneda Minis with the Post and Courier Sunday, April 25th, 2010
