What does Agriscaping mean?
Agriscaping is what you get when you bring together the best of ornamental landscaping and the best of productive agriculture.
Agri-Scape: (noun, verb)
noun: meaning a landscape that creatively and elegantly integrates elements of productive agriculture either by means of growing produce (edible fruits, vegetables, and herbs) or or other useful plants to reduce useless consumption, landfill waste, and water usage.
verb: the act of creating elegant, productive, and sustainable landscapes for the betterment of health and humanity.
Agriscaping has growing relevance and meaning to people in different ways around the globe, but none as comprehensive as what is being practiced and taught by Justin Rohner, Clark Richardson, and the Agriscaping Technologies Team based in the arid deserts of Arizona.
