Farm in the City

Urban farms are popping up all over the metro, from abandoned city lots to restaurant rooftops, bringing a fresh twist to local food.

Rob has numerous raised beds with interplanted herbs and perennial habitat. All materials for the raised beds are reused from crates. Chickens compost kitchen scraps and provide soil nutrients.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
