Abstract

This project sought to create a year-round self-sustainable urban food production system. Such a system may be achieved through a bioshelter. Green energy, compost, and rainwater were considered as alternatives to fossil fuels. This project worked closely with Worcester Common Ground and other community organizations to revitalize an abandoned lot in Worcester’s Piedmont neighborhood. Detailed designs, blueprints, and cost analyses were produced to aid Worcester Common Ground with the eventual construction of the bioshelter.
