Fifth Street Farm Wins 2014 AIA New York State Design Award

Congratulations to the Fifth Street Farm team! The pro bono rooftop farm project on the Robert Simon School Complex in Manhattan was recently given a 2014 AIA Award from New York State.

In addition to providing the many benefits that green roofs offer - mitigating heat island effect, reducing storm water run-off and providing areas of refuge to increase natural bio-diversity - the retrofitting allowed teachers at the school to weave growing and cultivating plants into the curricula of different classes and areas of inquiry, ranging from science to art.
