Growing Upon Community Roots Using Food, Culture and Commerce
With erratic weather patterns, loss and degradation of topsoil, depleting fresh water supplies, and many other environmental and social challenges, it is critical that communities incorporate systemic approaches to land management that promote healthy soil, clean water and nutritious foods. Everyone has a role to play in securing our children's healthy future. Farmscape Solutions is actively working with Alabama Small Farm Stakeholders to facilitate collaboration among our producers and consumers, in order to make our food supply safe, secure, nutritious, and accessible within and among our local communities.
Farmscape Solutions is a community-based organization that gives technical assistance to farmers to improve soil health, water quality, crop productivity and diversity by fusing age-old gardening methods with 21st century technology. We also connect farmers with slow food markets and promote slow money exchange, in hopes of securing local food systems and improving the health and interpersonal community connections. We work with farmers dedicated to improving environmental quality, regardless of size or location of the farm, be it rural or urban. We meet farmers where they are, mentally, physically, and economically. We use a sliding scale to determine the costs of our services.
