Where does your garden grow?

Need fresh, affordable food? No sunlight or green thumb?

THE STORY:

Every Last Morsel began as a landscaping service oddly enough, and
that landscaping service began with an assumption. Todd expected a
great many people would love to have their own garden and grow their
own food, but they simply didn't have the time or the knowledge to do
it themselves. If there's room enough to grow grass, then why not grow
food? And if lawn mowing services exist, then why can't farming
services too?

It wasn't long before Todd's list of clients grew quite large. Weeding
here; watering there; squashing bugs and building beds kept him rather
busy. And to remember which vegetables grew where was about as much
fun as playing with a spreadsheet, which is not very fun at all.

Enter Collin - Todd's high school friend and fellow gardener. As luck
would have it, he's also quite a talented web developer. Todd pitched
his idea for a web application to Collin. An application that would
allow him to map garden locations and list the plant varieties growing
in each. But expectations didn't remain so modest for long. Todd and
Collin realized that the concept would be much more interesting, if
they built it as an open network for everyone - green thumbs and
foodies alike - because the fun in growing food is sharing it after
all. And if they made it easy for people to share food, then maybe
people would be inclined grow more of it!

Farmscape Brings Urban Agriculture to Los Angeles - Cities - GOOD

Farmscape Brings Urban Agriculture to Los Angeles - Cities - GOOD | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
Farmscape is bringing farms to the homes and businesses of Los Angeles. Oh, and the company is also trying to run for mayor of the city.

A company called Farmscape is proving that there's enough of an appetite for farming on residential land to turn the proposition into a high-growth business. The less-than-four-year-old company has 12 full-time employees—including seven farmers who receive a living wage plus healthcare—and is looking to keep growing.

"One of the things that people don’t talk about when they talk about the food system is who is working," says Rachel Bailin, Farmscape's marketing manager. It's often poorly paid and vulnerable migrant workers. But the company is changing that by bringing farm labor out into the open, into the yards of city-dwellers and businesses. So far they've installed more than 300 urban farms throughout the L.A. area and maintain 150 of them weekly.
