The first IMPACT FARM on US ground has now been running for 12 months in Harlem. The project has come to life through a partnership between Human Habitat, a Danish design and build studio, Harlem Grown and Juice Generation. The purpose of the IMPACT FARM is to transform a neglected city lot into a lush, green, urban agricultural community hub. The project represents a viable model for replication that can help to increase access to farm fresh produce throughout lower-income neighborhoods in the urban landscape.
The workshop focuses on the learnings from the Juice Generation IMPACT FARM and the intersection with the efforts of New York City in developing similar urban farms. Participants of the workshop will through presentations and extensive knowledge sharing explore if and how the experiences from the Juice Generation IMPACT FARM may be useful in developing impact farms other places in New York City.
