Farmscape has been working with homeowners in the Los Angeles area since 2009 to create beautiful urban farms. The team at Farmscape delivers beautiful outdoor spaces that produce fresh and delicious vegetables for their clients. They also provide a unique experience to the families they work with, the opportunity to have access to a fresh air lab right in their own backyard. Farmscape sets itself apart from other landscaping and urban farming companies by hiring highly skilled, professional farmers to work with their clients. Farmers working with Farmscape hold degrees from highly ranked agricultural schools, such as the University of California, Davis. This concentration of skill allows the Farmscape team to build gardens that are a mix of beautiful design, smart engineering, environmental stewardship and maximum production. Farmscape families are paired with a farmer dedicated to their garden for the season. Farmers visit homes to maintain gardens and harvest produce. Visits from your Farmscape farmer become a part of your family’s routine. As an added benefit, gardening becomes a regular activity for children. Farmers often work with children to teach them the science of gardening, giving them a window into the life sciences. STEM education, collaborative learning and healthy nutritional habits have all been a recent focus for children and families. STEM education encompasses science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Farmscape gardens are carefully engineered to maximize their productivity while being environmentally friendly and beautiful, and provide real world educational opportunities in engineering and science. Kids are provided hands on experience with concepts in biology and learn how to work collaboratively with their Farmscape farmer to grow a successful garden. Having a Farmscape garden in the home makes proper nutrition a part of a child’s daily life. The Farmscape team focuses on a holistic experience for their clients. Providing beauty, nutrition and education for the families they work with is core to the Farmscape

  experience. Farmscape launched in the San Francisco Bay Area on March 17, 2014, bringing its unique brand of urban beautification to the region. For further questions or interviews, please contact Stephanie Margossian at margossian@realpolitech.com. About Farmscape Farmscape is California’s largest urban farming company. Since 2008, the company has installed over 350 urban farms at homes, schools, businesses and restaurants in California. Farmscape’s success has led to its move to expand into the Bay Area, beginning March 2014. Farmscape will replicate its successful Los Angeles model by growing food for urban denizens who want the farm-to-table experience right in the backyard of their homes and businesses. Farmscape is bringing the farm back to the city, one plot at a time. ###
