Urban Agriculture Take Root in a Business Park
Bishop Ranch is one of the largest and most prestigious business parks in the United States. It is also one of the most forward thinking. BASE has been involved in many facets of their extensive sustainability initiative, which includes a new on-site composting operation, developing a bike-sharing program, and installation of drought-tolerant planting. BASE Is working with Bishop Ranch to develop a 1-acre demonstration farm that will provide educational and recreational activities for tenants and visitors. The farm will collect and filter on-site stormwater, have a cutting garden that provides seasonal arrangements to buildings, a fruit orchard, a small vineyard, and a plaza with a cafe, CSA distribution shed, and gourmet food trucks.
