Scaling Up From Backyard Farm to Community Co-Op

Shareable friend Will Watman points us to this article and video in Fast Company:

At-home, DIY farming has become the rage among eco-conscious hipsters, but there's still one big problem: scaling up your window farm, so it can become a real food-source rather than a feel-good lark.

And that's what FarmShare, a Brooklyn-based project created by Stacey Murphy, aims to solve. The service, which is still in its early phases, is a finalist in the 2010 Buckminster Fuller Challenge, which seeks to find big-idea solutions to "humanity's most pressing problems."
