Sustainable Land Lab Groundbreaking

May 18, 2013 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Sustainable Land Lab Groundbreaking
Saturday, May 18, 9a
1318-24 Warren Street, Old North St. Louis

Four of the City’s vacant lots will be the new home for five demonstration projects that test new ways to think about vacant space. From a franchise-model urban farm co-existing next to an intimate bistro built out of re-used shipping containers, to a sunflower lab piloting efficiency of plant-based soil remediation, Old North St. Louis will be the first home to what will truly be a Sustainable Land Lab! Following the six month competition, the finalists have been announced, leases are being signed and on May 18th, ground will be officially broken on the Sunflower+ site (the April 27th ceremony was rained out). Following the ceremony there will be a walking tour of the other sites. The Sustainable Land Lab is a partnership between Washington University and the City of St. Louis, with support from Old North St. Louis Restoration Group, Equifax and the Regional Housing and Community Development Alliance.
