Farmscape has been collaborating with Chefs Niki Nakayama and Carole Iida-Nakayama to grow fresh produce for their two-Michelin-star restaurant n/naka since it opened more than a decade ago. During that time, we’ve built and managed gardens in San Gabriel and Culver City, providing abundant fresh produce. The Culver City garden was profiled in Sunset Magazine and is a great case study in maximizing production from a small space.

Their front yard lawn was converted to redwood raised beds, decomposed granite pathways and blue washed stone planting areas. The resulting garden used less water, while yielding a wide variety of fresh produce for the restaurant.
“The best representation of shishito peppers are ones you grow at home. They’re sweeter with more tender skin.”– Chef Niki Nakayama
