As more and more New Yorkers become interested in sustainable food, GrowNYC is launching an exciting new endeavor called Project Farmhouse to help spread awareness for earth-conscious eating. Slated to open in 2016, the sustainable culinary educational center will be located on the ground floor of the recently renovated Hyatt Hotel on East 13th Street. If you can’t wait until next year, head over to the Project Farmhouse Arch at GrowNYC’s Union Square Greenmarket starting this month for a preview of the upcoming initiative!
Project Farmhouse will be a vibrant center of sustainable culinary education for all New Yorkers. The center will host numerous programs on a weekly basis that focus on a dynamic range of culinary culture such as urban horticulture, arts, recycling, healthy cooking, and community education.
The goal of Project Farmhouse is to encourage and educate the community on making healthier and greener decisions by participating in the various activities offered by the center. The Farmhouse experience will include an interactive lecture space, a commercial kitchen for cooking demonstrations, and a resource center for local farmers.
The Project Farmhouse Arch, a preview of Project Farmhouse designed by Interbrand and ShiftSpace, will be on display at GrowNYC’s Union Square Greenmarket on November 14, 16, 18, 20 and 21 from 9:30am-3:30pm, so don’t forget to check it out!
