3D Modeling Gardens

OK, this isn’t a normal Catalina post about programming and how to integrate things.  This is one of our side projects in gardening.  One of the things that we are very passionate about is local farming and trying to figure out how to create economical farming that produces high nutritional value food, reduce water usage (we are in Southern California), and get food to people who need it.

Here is the actual system in action:
