It would be amazing when design landscape that not only beautiful but also edible, which is true in the case of the Veggie Patch Edible Landscape. This edible landscape will provide enough vegetables for people living in rural areas who think that they do not have any chance at all to enjoy fresh produce.
Aside from the fresh produce, it can provide for rural area residents, the Veggie Patch Edible Landscape is also made out of recycled materials. In this way, there will be less trash to add up to the mountains of landfills we already have, there will be more land area for use in housing or farming instead of having it used for landfills.
Other eco-friendly features that this rural edible landscape has are the irrigation technology and permaculture principles. Being situated right at the heart of urban areas, various costs will be eliminated. There will be no more packaging costs, for they are delivered freshly picked. There will be no more transportation cost as well as no more carbon emission for transporting produce to its consumers, who are just a walking distance far from the landscape. These allows the Veggie Patch Edible Landscape to let the people reduce their carbon footprint.
