KITCHEN GARDENING FOR BEGINNERS

Growing your own food is relishing nature’s bounties within your home environment.

City people are fond of gardening….not because they have ample space for gardening but it otherway round. If you are lucky enough to live in an apartment/bungalow with a yard or patio, you may be able to grow a garden in part of the space. Interestingly, garden growing in the city is not as hard as it sounds. Ironically it doesn’t require a lot of space. You can easily have a container garden on your balcony or window sill. You might be surprised what you can grow in a container from vegetables, herbs, salad dressings to fruits. Your gardening efforts will most likely yield more fresh produce than you can handle. More importantly gardening has therapeutic effect on grownups and excellent hobby for children. You will be surprised to see how one small garden turn into a delight corner for entire family.

If you’re thinking about starting a small vegetable garden but feel like a total newbie, iNaturewatch Foundation is starting a new online course on Kitchen Gardening to get you going. We will provide your virtual mentorship in establishing a kitchen garden at your place. The coursework will ensure that by end of the course we leave you with a functional and sustainable garden created just by you.
