West Louisville FoodPort

LouisvilleFoodPortThema: Urban Transformation.
Beschreibung: The FoodPort project is a food-centric economic and community development engine that will create jobs for West Louisville residents, enhance the built environment and green space of surrounding disinvested neighborhoods, enable existing small businesses to grow, increase farmers’ income as they increase their market channels, enable new food businesses to take their first steps, and provide educational opportunities around eating and agriculture. The project site is located at the intersection of the Russell, Shawnee and Portland neighborhoods, with plans to transform the 24-acre brownfield into a seed-to-waste food chain where food is grown, harvested, processed, sold, eaten and even disposed into a bio-digester to be converted to methane gas and returned to the energy stream. Along each step of this process, members of the Louisville community have a chance to work, learn, nourish, commune and invest in their own futures and that of their city.
