There’s No Space Too Small with Urban Gardening

The challenge of gardening isn’t necessarily the gardening itself.. but having enough space to do so.

If you live in an apartment, then you know what I’m talking about.

No yard, not enough room for your stuff as it is, let alone an entire garden.

Well let me tell you, starting your own apartment garden is easy peasy.

Urban gardening is a popular trend among many city dwellers.

Turning your fire escape, balcony, or rooftop into a garden has never been easier.

The Urban Organic Gardener started his first fire escape garden in May of 2009.
