Barbara Knecht

Urban Farming Institute
I say my work has taken me “from dirt to dirt,” and is tied to an enduring obsession with the intersection of people and designed environments - making physical and social environments that work for people. My professional title is architect. Currently I turn vacant lots into urban farms for the Urban Farming Institute. Different dirt but still navigating new territory including establishing the first Community Land Trust for commercial urban farms. Building farms and building housing both require steering real estate acquisition, translating user needs into design, navigating permitting, and supervising construction.
