Urban Farming and Food Gardening! cubit

Urban farming can mean something different to everyone who does it, so this is an open place for anyone who grows food without a full-scale farm. Whether you have a single windowsill herb pot in a studio apartment or a half acre in the suburbs with apple trees and a henhouse, this is the place for you. Come share the trials and successes of gardening within the confines of city life, whether you're a full-time urban homesteader or an occasional dabbler in the garden.
