Education Center on Organic and Sustainable Agriculture Methods

This progressive new education center, reminiscent of a common shed, will inform the public on both organic and sustainable methods of agriculture. Located in the Pungo area of Virginia Beach, VA, it is the result of a partnership between Community Development International and New Earth Farm, with pro bono help from Mark Schmidt and WPA. It features a seed-starting greenhouse, an open-air classroom, a built-in storage shed, a built-in pergola, and a rooftop garden that will grab the attention of passersby on the main road. These features will work together to form a simple and cohesive structure that is both functional and attractive.
