So you want to start your own urban garden because all of your friends are doing it? Easy. Go to a store, buy some seeds, put them in dirt, and you are done. Right? No. Not that easy. You need to make sure you’re working with the right soil, that you’re properly watering your plants, that your plants are protected from the elements, etc., etc., etc. Making your own urban garden or urban farm takes a lot of resources and commitment. Thankfully, Farmscape is here to help.
Part landscape assistants, part farm fairies, Farmscape was founded in 2008 to help people who want to start gardening in Los Angeles. They help in every capacity, aiding in designing your garden, installing your garden, and helping to maintain your garden. You work with their team of talented farmers to figure out how to make a garden work for you, oftentimes leading to your not needing to look outside of your little farm for produce ever again.
Farmscape is a remarkable and totally current idea. It celebrates our climate and geography and how we can use it in addition to educating you on your food. Thinking about a company like Farmscape is really interesting as it may not be able to survive in other cities. We are all aware of how super lucky and super spoiled we are in Los Angeles in terms of weather and land and how we can use both to our advantage. We owe it to ourselves to have some sort of garden or plant life, even if it is a small plant in the window of your apartment.
You can obviously study and do your own research to figure out how to make a garden, which would be incredibly resourceful. A hearty garden takes a lot of work and commitment and, if you don’t put the time into it, you’ll end up with a compost pile. That’s why Farmscape is such a neat idea. A little expensive but it undoubtedly pays you back in fruits, vegetables, and more. For more on Farmscape, check out their website, Like them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
