Yesterday, while at the Doctor's waiting room, I came across an article , pictures and all in an older Sunset magazine. It seams that this failed home loan officer in the SF bay area wanted to be an urban farmer that doesn't leave a large carbon footprint deep in his heart ... so he got his buddy ( a loan officer) to give his home buyers a brochure to start a home garden. For an application fee of $25, he then will come to your new home and install a garden for you. For a reasonable fee of $ 750.00, He has a compost comany deliver a load of compost to your driveway, then he and his wife arives at your home in the morning riding their bikes with a small trailer carrying shovels, rakes, hoes, irrigation supplies for a drip irrigation system. He then goes to the surrounding neighbors to borrow a wheelbarow and he and his wife moves the compost to the backyard garden area, hand digs the garden, installs the drip system and sows heritage vegetable seeds for the garden. He and his wife are done by the end of the day. The home owners then care for their own garden. Then he charges the home owner $ 25 plus shiping and handling per week for a box of a week's worth of fruits and vegatables (for 3 ) harvested from other fellow urban farmers who have them available that week. He has a waiting list for his services. This got me thinking. Hhmmmm !!! I wonder if I could start a similar chicken business if I could just work the bugs out?
