FarmScape is Your Personal Farmer

This is a really interesting concept that I discovered on Seedstock:

"An expert Farmscape farmer will visit your urban farm weekly to manage all aspects of your vegetable cultivation. We make quarterly visits to prune and maintain home orchards. Our weekly farming service includes plants, successive plantings, pest and disease control, crop rotation, and irrigation maintenance. All of our methods are organic and food safe. Having a garden does not have to be time consuming or difficult anymore - Know your farmer with Farmscape.

My understanding is that, if you have a backyard in southern California, Farmscape will come out an design an "urban farm" for your backyard, install it, and then manage it on a weekly basis. This allows the lot owner enjoys having a backyard garden that they don't have to maintain -- what a great concept for those that have money to spend on landscaping and want to have a beautiful, maintained garden. I guess it is sort of like a CSA grown in your backyard!

The entrepreneurial spirit of the local food economy continues to impress me.
