Farm for the City
Viridian Landscape Design & ThinkGreen
Client: Pennsylvania Horticultural Society
Project Type: Pop-Up Farm
Project Location: Thomas Paine Plaza, Philadelphia, PA
The Farm for the City transformed a Philadelphia plaza into a beautiful production farm, highlighting the role community gardens play in strengthening neighborhoods and drawing attention to food insecurity issues. Inspired by the nautilus, a symbol of expansion and renewal, the temporary 2000-square-foot garden comprised recycled and recyclable planters swirling around existing sculptures and reaching out toward the city. Over a single season, it delivered 1,200 pounds of produce to feed 8,600 people.
