KC Design Week : Betting the (Urban) Farm

KC Design Week has INFORMED, CONNECTED, and INSPIRED our community since 2010.

KCDW is the perfect example of a creative community coming together, lifting each other up, and proving once again that Kansas City is a design destination, rich with talent.

Come explore the grounds of Westport Commons to learn about best practices and the integration of design as Ami Freeberg of Cultivate KC and Adam Weichman of BNIM dig into unique aspects and challenges of the design. Located on 39th Street between Main Street and Gillham Road, Westport Commons Farm aims to be a beautiful urban farm that creates a place for neighborhood residents and businesses to connect with their food and with each other. Using cover crops as green manure, Cultivate KC is improving the health of the soil to grow food for the community. The native plant landscape features water management practices to mitigate stormwater runoff from around Westport Commons.

Tickets are $15. Lunch is provided.
