T. Fleisher, Director of Horticulture, Battery Park City Parks Conservancy

More Details:
The desire to build and operate a sustainable public park influenced every aspect of Teardrop Park's development, from material selection to contractor practices.

Not only is the Battery Park City park layout and program a response to the microclimatic asymmetry created by the buildings and winds off the Hudson; the varied fabricated soils were also meticulously calibrated to create optimum growing conditions. Based on decades-long research into urban soils and non-toxic plant maintenance, environmental aspects of the park's design include fully organic soils and maintenance regimes that don't rely on pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Treated and recycled gray-water from the adjacent LEED Gold-rated Solaire Building and stormwater runoff from the site captured in an underground storage pipe supply all of the park's irrigation needs.

If you'd like to attend this event you can purchase tickets online.
