“FutureFarmers is a collaborative group of designers and artists exploring the relationship of concept and creative process between interdisciplinary artists making work that is relevant to the time and space surrounding us. Their current project is Victory Gardens 2007 – a concept currently being developed with the intention of being adopted by the City of San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Department. The project draws from the historical model of the 1940’s American Victory Garden program to provide a basis for developing urban agriculture as a viable form of sustainable food practice in the city. Read more about Victory gardens here and here. Also check out our how to green your gardening and TreeHugger TV edible estates.
Futurefarmers are offering starter kits which are delivered to your house by gardener upon a tricycle and include a lesson on how to build a raised bed, planting instructions, instructions for installing a drip irrigation system with a water- and time-saving timer and one follow up harvest and seed saving lesson.” (Treehugger)
