Farm For the City Wins ASLA Honor Award
We're so pleased to announced that our project, Farm For the City, has been recognized by the American Society of Landscape Architects with an National Honor Award in the Urban Design category and a National People's Choice Award.
From the Jury's comments:
The installation of Farm for the City at Philadelphia’s Paine Plaza effectively humanizes the Brutalist plaza with a nutritive oasis within a food desert. Activating the space and informing citizenry of what it means to create one's own sustenance in the context of the city speaks to the breadth of the landscape architecture profession. Despite its temporary nature, the 2,000-square-foot project delivered an outsized impact—more than 50 crops—to 8,600 unhoused or at-risk individuals, while also teaching community gardening skills to encourage self-sustaining practices, provide healthy food, and cultivate future farmers.
