How to Grow Food for FREE in the City

Posted on Jul 14 2017 - 6:43am by UOG

This is a guide on how to grow food for free or with very little money in an urban environment. I cover all the limiting factors that typically prevent people from gardening including space, raised beds and containers, water, compost, soil, mulch, seeds and go into how to compost, how to make a compost bin, how to harvest rainwater, how to do grey water, how to forage and much more. The idea of this video and guide is to help you get past all the limiting challenges of gardening in the city and get you to start growing some food. This guide is geared particularly at how to grow food for free or with very little money in an urban environment where space may be limited. One of the main keys to growing food for free in the city is to utilize wasted materials and resources. Creating a minimal environmental impact is a central part of everything in this guide and utilizing wasted materials and resources is one of the best ways to keep our environmental impact small.

    Awesome video. I write about sustainable urban gardening in Chicago. Thank you for sharing this video and thank you for providing so many options. i love the air condition condensation idea for the vertical garden. I am practicing permaculture right now and your video definitely falls in line with a lot of the principles involved in the designing process. Let’s connect! Peace- Jackie
