A consortium of groups led by the NYU Steinhardt Food Studies program and the Silver Towers Tenants Association were awarded a Green Grant to fund a new urban garden on the NYU campus. The garden, officially named the NYU Urban Farm Lab, will be located on the grassy plot of land on the south side of 110 Silver Towers near Houston Street. Directed by food studies professors Jennifer Berg and Amy Bentley, the purpose and mission is primarily academic, and the urban farm will be used year round for teaching and research. An Urban Farm Lab Steering Committee will be also setup to incorporate NYU community groups. NYU also proud to announce that this is the first urban agriculture project in the City of New York on a Landmarked site (with Landmark approval!).
NYU community members wishing to volunteer with the farm should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Led by faculty members Jennifer Berg, Amy Bentley, and Matthew Hoffman.
