About Urban Organic Gardener and Mike Lieberman
Urban Organic Gardener is the brainchild of Brooklyn native Mike Lieberman (that’s me).
As an individual who had no previous gardening experience or training, I have been able to turn the little space in and around my apartments into vegetable gardens.
On my 2×3 fire escape in New York City, I was able to grow cherry tomatoes, peppers, kale, swiss chard, lettuces, oregano, mint and more.
Since that time, I’ve moved to Los Angeles and now have a 13×4 balcony garden where I get a steady supply of non-chemically treated greens.
I’m proof that you don’t need to have lots of land or space to be able to grow and regularly eat your own fresh food while not worrying about chemical pesticides…once you know how to utilize the space.
What Readers Say About Urban Organic Gardener
“Mike 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
“I am so glad I have found your site,love it ! I have been thinking of growing my own vegetables for awhile now & reading & seeing what you have done has motivated me. I do try & buy seasonal organic when I can as I also hate that most of our fruits & vegetables have pesticides. Keep up the great work ! ” — Comment left by Debbie on the site

To get where I am today, I haven’t taken the typical path (typical is boring anyways). The man who actually had the most influence on me is Howard Stern.
