Urban Gardening

Have you seen the latest in urban farming. 

Urban farming has been a steadily growing trend in the U.S. for years but, now, a Los Angeles company is taking it vertical and making it personal, and Hollywood A-Listers are blowing the “vertical farming” movement sky high.  Thanks to ingeniously designed aeroponic gardens from 
LA Urban Farms, thousands of regular folks are growing their own personal food source on their balconies, rooftops, patios, driveways – even indoors – and are using 90% less water (and 90% less space) to do so.
 
Even chefs at the Google Cafeteria, Chicago O’Hare Airport and Giants Stadium, to name a few public places, are now growing food with this patented technology.
These farms have become the ‘It” thing in Hollywood because they represent a commitment to locally sourced food, to an organic lifestyle, and to reducing one’s carbon footprint.  Actress Jessica Alba, owner of the Honest Company in Santa Monica, enjoys an LA Urban Farms garden at home and several at work for her employees.  Over the holidays, “Wild” co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern gifted each other with these vertical gardens.

This is not only for the rich and famous - Check out how to put a farmer’s market on your back porch.
