Case Study Preview: The Edible Garden @ VF Outdoor

With the book, Designing Urban Agriculture, coming together nicely and a fast approaching publishing date (March 2013!) we thought a little peek at what is coming would be fun…


VF Outdoor, the people who bring you The North Face, Vans, Lucy Jansport, and much more, encompasses the outdoor and environmentally responsible lifestyle. In their continued effort for doing good by the earth, with their new water conscious campus landscape, an edible garden intended to serve the cafeteria was included. The people of VF Outdoor are invited to get their hands dirty in the garden and help cultivate their lunch.
