I don’t mean join a CSA. I actually mean, hire someone to do it for you. In San Francisco, that someone is a business called MyFarm, whose employees will come over, design a garden in your backyard, and then do maintainence for it on weekly visits. You can read about it here.
I have to admit I am torn by this idea. By growing a garden in your own yard, of course you are much more connected to your food. But by paying others to maintain it for you, you introduce yet another middle-person.
One thing I do like about this idea is that some of us simply do not know much about gardening (I include myself in this group). I could see hiring this outfit and then working alongside them to see how it’s done. And after some time, discontinuing the weekly maintenance visits to do it myself. I’m sure that won’t happen, but it’s a nice idea.
