Farming in cities and towns is not a new idea – urban agriculture has been around for centuries (at least). We’re out to create a better food system through organic gardening. We want to reconnect people with where their food comes from by growing vegetables right on rooftops, in repurposed plastics, box gardens, old crates, and vases.
Organic gardening is an easy method to produce nutritious food in an environmentally sustainable way using living soil organisms to provide rich and fertile soil.
Most fruiting plants require at least 6 hours of sunshine a day but leafy greens such as lettuce, kale etc as well as plants such as leeks and garlic can get by with less.
An Efficient Watering System
All crops require water to survive. The most efficient method of supplying water to the soil is the use of drippers.
An Active Soil biology
The key to nutritious food is fertile soil. Organic gardeners rely on soil inhabinating organisms to break down organic matter into plant nutrients within the soil and nutrients can be accessed through roots .
Plants appropriate for the season.
Crops grown in the appropriate season and suitable for the climate. This is much more healthy and easy to grow than crops grown outside their normal environmental range.
