What Readers Say About Urban Organic Gardener
“I love that you have this site! There are a number of sites that address the organic gardening issue. Yours however shows how to do this for a number of us that have real space limitations and shows it done for pats with there limited lighting. Addressing these issue by showing how it’s done it GREAT. Plus us very small food gardeners have you to contact with and know you will be the one responding with practical experience for us to work on with.” — Comment left by Cheri on Facebook
