How to combat hunger and malnutrition? Let’s grow fresh food in containers (Jimmy PIOQUINTO / Willem Van Cotthem)

We have a Facebook group on “Container gardening and vertical gardening” :

Today, Jimmy PIOQUINTO posted some nice photos to show the success of his experiments with container gardening and vertical gardening.

These examples show clearly that container gardening and vertical gardening can be applied everywhere on this world, thus offering people an opportunity to grow fresh food with a minimum of water.  Grow vegetables in the soil or in containers. You can also grow a lot of them vertically. It’s simple, it’s inexpensive, it’s rewarding !

Something to be promoted at the largest scale !  Spread the good word !
