Harlem Grown is a nonprofit that works with students to promote urban gardening, sustainability, and nutrition while advocating for education and job training. They are currently expanding their urban gardening outreach in West Harlem.
The Elevated Studio is assisting with and guiding the design process and implementation. We are partnering with Human Habitat, a design firm in Copenhagen that has developed the Impact Farm, which is a "shippable" greenhouse-in-a-box.
We hosted a wonderful community charrette in partnership with CUNY graduate students. The ideas generated were fabulous and have been implemented into our master design. Construction is underway.
In addition to the Impact Farm, we are incorporating an educational amphitheater, a teaching kitchen, library, solar panels, and much more.
