FarmScape Your SoCal Lawn for Fresh Food

We can eat food grown in our backyards that is ripe, nutritious, and good for the planet, or we can eat food that is grown using chemical fertilizers, harvested early and shipped across the country.

During World War II, nearly 20 million Victory Gardens planted by everyday American citizens on behalf of the war effort yielded almost 40 percent of the nation’s food supply . In a 2003 agricultural census, the USDA found that large-scale and corporate farms, representing just nine percent of all farms in the nation produced a whopping 73 percent of total food supply. Because this system treats food like any other commodity to be traded, our meal is often grown thousands of miles from our dinner table.

Farmscape has a different vision: Delicious vegetables grown using organic methods right in your backyard, picked when ripe, and eaten while bursting with flavor.

Los Angeles Backyard Organic Gardening

Farmscape installs raised-bed vegetable gardens in front or back yards and offers organic-method garden maintenance and consulting. The Farmscape urban farming is a service business that aims to increase the accessibility and quality of sustainably-grown food in the Los Angeles area.

Because Farmscape gardens are both local and organic-method they avoid some of the pitfalls associated with non-local organic food and with locally grown non-organic food. If organic food is shipped across the country before it is consumed, many of the environmental benefits are mitigated by the greenhouse gas emissions generated by cross-continental transportation
