Comments Off on Is Riverpark Farm the "Most Urban Farm"? Decide For Yourself

Riverpark’s Sicha Ortuzar with his rooftop farm celery I had heard a lot about the Riverpark Farm before I arrived at the rooftop farm above 430 East 29th Street near First Avenue in midtown Manhattan.

Comments Off on DOE Promotes Updating Building Codes

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is working with 24 states across the country to support the adoption of updated building codes which incorporate increased energy-efficiency requirements. $7 million is being apportioned in grants of $150,000 to $350,000 to assist the states, who have agreed to work with DOE, to “advance adoption, training, and compliance for the updated building codes.” “As part of the Administration’s broad efforts to help families and businesses save money by saving energy, these awards will help states and local communities significantly cut the energy intensity of the nation’s buildings sector, which accounts for more than 40 percent of the energy consumed in the U.S.” according to the agency’s press release. Energy efficiency in building codes varies from state to state.
