Harlem Composting Greenhouse Models: Participatory Budgeting

Open Road is working with youth from Bro-Sis in Harlem to build a composting greenhouse in the community garden next to their youth center. Their old greenhouse (below) is too small for their growing programs. The new greenhouse will be integrated with their food gardens (second photo below). The NYC Council has invited a proposal for this project for Participatory Budgeting

Photographs below are 3D Greenhouse + garden models in process.
