Farmscape is the largest urban farming venture in California. Our mission is to connect city dwellers with fresh, organic produce through a network of urban farms, while creating living wage jobs for the new generation of farmers.
To date, Farmscape have installed over 600 urban farms and currently maintain more than 250 of those plots.
Matthew Geldin is the head farmer at Farmscape. Matthew was one of the first Farmscape interns, assisting with garden routes and nursery propagation. Before returning to Farmscape as Head Farmer, he worked as a gardener at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, designing education gardens and working with Fritz Haeg to build the Wildflowering LA installation. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly Pomona, focusing on urban and regenerative design, and has completed additional study in horticulture, permaculture, and natural building techniques. Matthew has contributed to Fine Gardening Magazine and is a visiting lecturer at the LA Arboretum and Cal State Northridge.
