The Community Action Services and Food Bank in Provo, Utah is a nonprofit with multiple programs that help combat poverty, but one of their programs is growing. Literally. In 2008, the Community Action Services and Food Bank started their Community Garden Program. For a small fee, anyone in the community can rent a small plot that they get to manage. The renter does all of their own planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, and other maintenance.
Recently, the gardens have started struggling with trespassing and theft which started making the renters uncomfortable when they came to tend to their plots. LiveView Technologies (LVT) deployed a single Omni unit mounted on a mobile trailer that was set up in less than 30 minutes. It required no construction, heavy installation, or hardwire connections. Instead, the camera is mounted on a 22-foot mast, powered through solar panels, connects wirelessly through cellular connectivity, and has full views of the garden. The live feed from the camera can be accessed at any time from any device.
