Thomas Woltz is the principal and owner of Nelson Byrd Woltz (NBW) Landscape Architects. He was named “Design Innovator of the Year” by WSJ Magazine in 2013, and in 2011 was invested into the American Society of Landscape Architects’ Council of Fellows, among the highest honors in the profession. In 1998, Woltz initiated the Conservation Agriculture (ConAg) Studio at NBW, bringing together master farmers, ecologists, designers, landowners and institutions to create new models of biodiversity within damaged ecological infrastructures and working farmland in North America, New Zealand and Australia. Woltz and his firm have partnered with Monticello on a range of initiatives, including a 2011 Landscape Stewardship Study of the Foundation’s historic landholdings, which envisioned a center for sustainable agriculture at Tufton Farm, among other proposals.
