Urban gardeners rejoice! Montecito Urban Farms has developed a way to get the most nutrients out of your fresh veggies!
Montecito Urban Farms sells both tower plant structures as well as the fresh food they grow on site. The tower structures are extremely easy to assemble and feature a water timer that is used to get the most nutrients out of your garden as possible! The water timer is set based on the weather where you live. The ones in Summerland (shown here) are set at 15 minute intervals. Gardeners on site have determined that the amount of water given at each 15 minute interval is perfect for their vegetables. If they gave them any more water (and if they did so more frequently), the plants would actually become lazy and not absorb as much nutrients. Similar to our metabolism, "survival mode" encourages the plants to take in all that they can. The results? Fresh veggies that local residents and businesses alike can't get enough of!
