I came across this article a little while ago and it absolutely emphasizes why it is so important to us that people have access to locally grown produce.
Reviewing the image below it is very clear to see the gap between the money going to the farmer and the money lost in the process on transport and other costs.
This is the financial impact, the impact on the environment, on our transport infrastructure and on the mass producing farmers to be ever cheaper is not even counted here.
Our goal is to make our easy to use, space and water efficient system, accessible to as many Urban Farmers, Community Gardens and Home Enthusiasts as we can so that everybody in our community can eat healthy, natural and organic produce that is grown in their local neighborhood.
