NYCHA FARM

Working with Added Value, Green City Force, and NYCHA, thread developed a plan and framework for the first community farm on public housing property in New York City. ¬†Existing informal pedestrian paths and a north / south orientation optimal for growing intersect to create a dynamic pattern of planters and gathering spaces. Level planter tops accentuate the existing topography, while trees and benches punctuate the pattern. In addition to producing fresh vegetables, the farm serves as a site of education, job training, and community engagement. Check out NYCHA’s press release. [1 acre]
