Downtown Tomatoes, indeed

Crossposted from Downtown Tomatoes, our blog about urban gardening.

Trevor Paque quit the mortgage business about a year ago. Casting about for the next thing, he came up with a new business model for Community Supported Agriculture: ‘decentralized urban farm.’ He and his My Farm team will install an organic vegetable garden for a client in about a week’s time, complete with drip irrigation and heirloom seeds. Thereafter, a farmer visits the backyard once a week, harvesting when ready a box of vegetables for the client owner. If the owner wishes, boxes of vegetables are also sold to neighbors, which reduces the cost of the CSA service.

Advertising only by flier, Mr. Paque now has well over 100 clients. Well done!
