Alabama Farming Basics
Farmscape Solutions is a community-based organization that gives technical assistance to farmers to improve soil health, water quality, crop productivity and diversity by fusing age-old gardening methods with 21st century technology. We also connect farmers with slow food markets and promote slow money exchange, in hopes of securing local food systems and improving the health and interpersonal community connections. We work with farmers dedicated to improving environmental quality, regardless of size or location of the farm, be it rural or urban. We meet farmers where they are, mentally, physically, and economically. We use a sliding scale to determine the costs of our services.
With erratic weather patterns, loss and degradation of topsoil, depleting fresh water supplies, and many other environmental and social challenges, it is critical that communities incorporate systemic approaches to land management that promote healthy soil, clean water and nutritious foods. Everyone has a role to play in securing our children’s healthy future. Farmscape Solutions is actively working with Alabama Small Farm Stakeholders to facilitate collaboration among our producers and consumers, in order to make our food supply safe, secure, nutritious, and accessible within and among our local communities.
Farmscape Solutions is an nonprofit organization dedicated to improving soil health, water quality and crop productivity through sustainable regenerative farming and gardening practices.
We envision a world where healthy food and healing herbs will be just outside every doorstep, around every corner, and the knowledge to grow and use them will be available to everyone.
Farmscape Solutions is located at 41 West Main Street in Notasulga, Alabama. Look for our demonstration plots planted right down the road from our laboratory, headed west on Hwy 81. We plant open pollinated heirloom varieties suited for our area. If you come during the growing season, you liable to leave with some veggies!
