Apartment Gardening: Plants, Projects, and Recipes for Growing Food in Your Urban Home [Paperback]

Amy Pennington (Author), Kate Bingaman-Burt (Illustrator)

Grow squash on your patio, flowers in your window box, and pick blackberries from your parking strip. Apartment Gardening details how to start a garden in the heart of the city. From building your own planter box to sprouting seeds in jars on the counter, every small space is plantable. Beginning and experienced gardeners will discover how to save money on produce and impress friends with their newly-tenacious green thumbs. This book reveals that the DIY future is now by providing hands-on accessible advice to start using space sustainably, efficiently, and inexpensively. Apartment Gardening includes instructions on how to build your own planter box, grow lettuce in recycled containers, keep bees on your patio, and infuse spirits with herbs grown right in your kitchen. Eating locally starts at home — every surface holds an opportunity for something planted, pickled, or preserved.
