Just because you live in a city doesn’t mean you can’t garden!
Urban gardens come in many shapes and sizes. Some urban gardens are as small as a window box or container full of herbs sitting on a fire escape stairwell. Some are as large as the backyard gardens often found in suburban and rural areas.
Working around the constraints of limited-space, light, and microclimates created from the shadows of neighboring buildings can be fun to figure out. After, all, urban gardening is gardening against the odds — and who doesn’t enjoy a challenge! We’re urban dwellers after all.
So, shed your work clothes, pick up your iPod, and join me on a journey through the world of gardening done urban and gardening done casual.
