Gardening without land....

In Brooklyn, NYC, Ian Cheney shows that you can have a garden even if you don't have any land. (He actually runs a mini-CSA!) Using rooftop gardening technology (but not on a roof), he grows and delivers fresh vegetables to his surrounding area. Recently, he has visited schools in a travelling exhibition.

That is just about as cool as it gets! I love how creative people are getting in their attempts to be more self-reliant and grown their own food. I wish I'd seen this a couple of weeks ago. My neighbors just had an old truck towed out of their yard. They've beent talking about starting a garden for years, and with that old truck bed, they could have gotten started this week ;). Oh, well ;).

Thanks for sharing the clip. It's awesome, and totally reenforces what I've been saying for years ... that a lot can be done in a little space.
