Landscape

The Oak Spring estate comprises 700 acres set in the Virginia hunt country and flanked by the Bull Run and Blue Ridge Mountains. OSGF is actively stewarding the land, already protected by Paul and Bunny Mellon as part of a conservation easement, to one day exemplify sustainable land management practices and provide ample opportunities for horticulture, arboriculture and sustainable agriculture.

A Sense of Place

As a starting place for developing a landscape management plan, OSGF completed a comprehensive site survey on 263 acres of the Foundation's property. The survey resulted not just in a clearer picture of how to sustainably manage the land, but also a holistic sense of place, with threads connecting Oak Spring's future to its natural and human history. After OSGF acquired the adjoining 440-acre Rokeby property, a second survey was done on the new parcel of land. You can read both of these comprehensive surveys below:
