TEDxClaremontColleges – Jesse DuBois – The Urban Farming Revolution
Jesse DuBois is an urban agriculturalist. He moved to Los Angeles to become a screenwriter, but instead got caught up in reshaping the food system. He is the CoFounder and currently serves as the Chief Eclectic Officer for two start-ups: Farmscape, an urban farming maintenance company, and Agrisaurus, a web-based polyculture gardening assistant. Horticulturally, he is a big fan of the nightshade family.
“Agrisaurus is a suite of digital tools to help food gardeners plan and manage a successful garden. The design tools focus on polyculture gardening for small beds, while the calendar tools assist with climate-informed planning and management of successive planting schedules.”
