1Thing: Farmlette? It’s Not Gardening 101!

July 2, 2018

I read an interesting article recently and it so inspired me that I wanted to share about it.   A Florida based organization has created Fleet Farming.  Their novel concept is to turn homeowner’s yards into vegetable gardens, aka micro-farms.   How does it work?  The homeowner covers the upfront cost of supplies and Fleet Farming turns their yard into a farmlette, they do the preparation, irrigation, planting, weeding and harvesting.   In return the homeowner can harvest 10% of the produce, and the rest is sold at farmers markets and to local restaurants. 

This is an organization that is forward thinking and impacting our environment for the better!  To learn more about this awesome concept visit their website: https://fleetfarming.org/
