Coconut Grove Foodway
The Coconut Grove Foodway is a conceptual design for a large-scale intervention to integrate foodscapes into various underutilized public and civic spaces in Coconut Grove, a historic neighborhood in Miami, FL. This is an ongoing collaboration with the City of Miami.
Omni LIFE Village
The Omni LIFE Village, in Omni neighborhood of downtown Miami, FL, was the original conceptual design (see The Landing) to activate an empty lot in this currently desolate area. The design includes an urban farm, food coop, design center, retail nursery, retail spaces, event/workshop space (stage, bar, café).
Overtown Community Farm
Overtown Community Farm is the latest of several design concepts for an empty lot in one of Miami’s most economically challenged neighborhoods. Here, Inhabit Earth will host an urban farm for the community. It will consist of a border of perennial staple crops, several annual production areas and an edible plant nursery to support it. The farm will be operated as an incubator for various local producers.
LIFE @ Opa-Locka
LIFE @ Opa-Locka is a design/build project underway in Opa-Locka, FL., another of Miami’s economically challenged areas. LIFE stands for Local Integrated Food Enterprise, a new model for regenerative economic development that is perfect for empty lots in the urban core. The eco-social aspects design went significantly beyond the site (urban farm, food market, cafe) and included all the operational aspects (business plan, production plan, menu, staffing, etc.) as well.
Concrete Plant Park
Concrete Plant Park is located in The Bronx, NY. It is one of the first of many planned foodscapes within the larger Bronx River Foodway. It was a product of a facilitated community design process and consists of an acre+ food forest open to the public for foraging and learning. The Foodway is an ongoing collaboration with NYC Parks, The Bronx River Alliance, and many local community groups.
