Design: Tim Stephens
Project: Huntington Urban Farm
Location: Huntington, NY, USA
This specific case study locates the Urban Farm on existing car-park covered land in the centre of Huntington Township, in close proximity to the town’s public library, church and nursery. The Urban Farm’s primary objective is to promote and support the act of growing one’s own produce in a controlled, and convenient manner. The issue of growing sustainable food crops is only going to become more prevalent and what better way to promote the practice, than to provide farmable plots in the centre of townships, accessible to the entire community.
