GrowNYC is creating THE hub for sustainability here in New York. 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 next to the renovated Hyatt Hotel Union Square in Manhattan, and designed by ORE, beginning in 2016,Project Farmhouse will be a home for dynamic programming, which will take place throughout the day and evenings, and on some weekends.

This is our Dream. Help us Build It.

Kitchen Coming Soon!

The Boffi Teaching Kitchen is seamlessly designed and outfitted with Gaggenau appliances - including flush mounted induction cooktop and hood - and lava stone countertop and backsplash by Nero Sicilia. Breville USA donated additional appliances including juicers, toasters, a stand mixer, food processor and other appliances that will make this a state of the art chef's kitchen. Special engineers will come in mid-December to custom build the kitchen into our space. We are excited for you to join us for cooking classes and nutrition education, including chef-led programs this kitchen, one of the centerpieces of Project Farmhouse.

Hammers are swinging at Project Farmhouse! We look forward to opening our doors to you.

In keeping with GrowNYC's environmental ethos, the design of the space embraces a principal of minimal intervention, reducing landfill waste from demolition and requiring fewer new materials.  For example, instead of a typical dropped ceiling, Project Farmhouse will employ hanging acoustical baffles made from recycled plastic. In fact, recycled materials are used extensively:  wall paneling and conference table from salvaged wood, as well as countertops, carpet and acoustic panels made with recycled content. All light fixtures use energy-saving LEDs, and occupancy sensors and controls further reduce energy consumption.  And plumbing fixtures minimize water usage, including water-saving toilets and low-flow aerators on faucets.

Exciting features:

  • Modern, farm-inspired design by ORE Technology
  • A custom kinetic hydroponic wall designed by City Hydroponics features a new proprietary system designed to reduce both energy usage and water consumption
  • A-state-of the art kitchen designed by Boffi Soho featuring Gaggenau appliances and a Nero Sicilia countertop and backsplash, made of lava stone from the Etna volcano in Sicily.
  • A farm-inspired entry archway using repurposed wood beams from Brooklyn by M Fine Lumber
  • Solar tubes pull light in to naturally light education / conference area



 In November New Yorkers got a close up sneak peak of Project Farmhouse when they walked through the Arch Installation sponsored by TD Bank up for one week at our Union Square Greenmarket.
