About Project Farmhouse
We envision Project Farmhouse to be an international center for learning and exploration. Think film festivals, panel discussions, cooking classes, conferences and more. Finally, GrowNYC will have a permanent, public home from which to serve all New Yorkers. Project Farmhouse will create community for all ages around a range of free and affordable workshops, exhibits, hands-on youth education and special events. Located in Union Square, beginning in 2016, Project Farmhouse will be a place to explore environmental issues through the lens of food, horticulture, arts, recycling, cooking, and more.
