The Prototype Community Garden Shelter was constructed as a spring event for the Plain Green Conference and Marketplace in downtown Sioux Falls. The small shelter was completed as the second annual community service project integrating hands on learning, sustainable building concepts, and community stewardship for local volunteers.
The project is a prototype for seven other community gardens around the city. Each shelter will highlight a different sustainable material including gabion construction, rammed earth, straw bale, compressed earth block, and cordwood.
The Community Garden Shelter serves the local urban agriculture community, providing a place to gather, share information, provide storage, and demonstrate sustainable building techniques.
