CIty farming just took another step forward. First it was repurposed vacant lots blossoming as urban gardens, then restaurants growing their own produce, and now Greensulate installed an indoor vegetable patch in a Manhattan hotel.
DIY your own food in the middle of a city in the middle of winter. Greensulate designed and installed this vertical hydroponic vegetable system for GrowNYC. The hanging farm serves as a source of fresh leafy greens for events in the Grow NYC event space near Union Square, Manhattan.
GrowNYC runs the New York City farmers’ markets. The facility, called Project Farmhouse, is a state-of-the-art sustainability center that allows New Yorkers to explore environmental issues through the lens of food, horticulture, arts, and more. www.projectfarmhouse.org
These systems are great when space is limited or when the winters are harsh. Greensulate was thrilled to be asked to create this productive indoor farm for GrowNYC and hopes to install more and more of these systems around NYC and across the country. Project Farmhouse is a block away from the Union Square farmer’s market, and sits on the ground floor of the new Hyatt Union Square Hotel.
