ASLA-NYs 4 CEUs and a Beer: Productive Landscapes in the Urban Environment
Productive Landscapes in the Urban Environment – Program Details
Date: March 14th, 2014
Time: 1-5:30pm Lectures | 5:30 – Happy Hour
Location: Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, NYC
With urban agriculture emerging globally, many NYC residents are actively transforming open space, roof tops and ecologically challenged environments to become local havens – productive landscapes providing a complex matrix of social, educational, nutritional and health benefits to their communities. But like everything else in NYC, survival is a challenge. In a series of dialogues, learn how design, landscape architecture, agriculture and pollinators in the urban environment systemically relate, and examine new implementation trends to ensure the health and sustainability of these productive urban landscapes.
This event will feature leading thinkers in urban farming, productive landscape design, and experts with pollinators in the urban environment. In a series of moderated discussions, panelists will share their thoughts on how landscape architects and other design professions can apply their skills and provide services to create a more sustainable environment – one that supports food production not only as a bi-product but as the primary function with substantial benefits to New York City as a whole.
Please join us for the lecture series on Friday, March 14th from 1 to 5:30pm. A happy hour will follow to allow attendees to continue the conversation with speakers and each other. To continue the success of our previous “4 CEUs and a Beer” events, 4 ASLA/AIA CEU credits are planned to be offered, along with a complimentary happy hour.
