Space Constraints? Try Edible Landscaping
 

Space… can be the final frontier for the urban food grower.

If you’re short on space but big on growing food, don’t despair: edible green spaces can be yours! Green roofs, vertical walls and balcony gardens are all options.

Join Vancouver landscape architect, Senga Lyndsay at: Floors, Walls and Roofs: Hottest trends in edible landscaping, 2 pm, Feb 15 at Seedy Saturday to get started on your urban food garden!

“One of the best ways to make efficient use of space, especially in an vegetable garden, is to grow edibles vertically. Sprawling vines such as cucumbers and indeterminate tomatoes benefit from being lifted off the ground and away from soil-bourne organisms and diseases that can damage your harvest. From a design point of view, all gardens benefit from something that introduces height, interest and rhythm. ” from Edible Landscaping: Urban Food Gardens that Look Great, by Senga Lindsay
