The goal of the Lancaster Urban Farming Initiative is to produce 10-20 acres of fresh vegetables atop Prince Street Garage. Idealized as a vertical greenhouse in the heart of Lancaster, the expansive glass and steel structure will demonstrate new initiatives in urban farming in an underutilized public space.
Improve community infrastructure, utilize underperforming street space, and demonstrate the county’s commitment to world-class farming.
Establish large-scale urban farming in Lancaster County.
Produce year-round harvests of produce, herbs, and plants for local food distributors and institutions including LGH/Penn Medicine.
