Samuel Robinson was born and raised in Brooklyn. His interest in landscapes and garden began while running through abandoned lots of Gowanus and the fields of Prospect Park. As a Peace Corps Volunteer in Central Asia, Samuel experienced a post industrial environmental landscape and the effects on an agrarian society. After his service, he studied horticulture at the Royal Botanic Gardens, landscape design at NYBG and metalworking at Pratt.
His first company, Greenwood Robinson was founded in 2011. The company worked alongside job training programs such as Green City Force on NYCHA Urban Farms in Harlem, Friends of the High Line on Community Gardens in the Bronx as well as numerous private developments in Brooklyn. Greenwood Robinson was the first company to install rain gardens along the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, managing over 100,000 gallons of potential combined sewer overflow and remediating over 5,000 sq ft of contaminated soil after strategically removing large swaths of concrete from the site. Samuel brings his seven years of experience to his new company, Field Form, alongside a team of seasoned Architects, Designers and Builders, committed to using sustainable practices to bring productive landscapes to New York City.
