3 Gorgeous Vertical Gardens | greenUPGRADER | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it
Growing food in small spaces can be tough, but it's by no means off the table. By making use of vertical space, you can maximize your garden's capacity, even if all that you have to work with is a balcony or windowsill.

P3 Permaculture's curator insight, February 8, 2013 8:51 PM
Food is the issue that ties us all together, In permaculture we focus on creating productive gardens, and systems that grow food for people and wildlife without maintenance. Just last year during this "drought" we had in canada, our suburban permaculture site didn't water but 2 times all summer, she didn't even have to set up her drip line. If you like this kind of thing and want to know more visit our workshop section and take some of our Suburban Permaculture workshops on Mushroom cultivation, forest gardens, and much more. http://p3permaculture.ca/Permaculture_Workshops.html

Rooftop Farms and the Environment

Rooftop Farms and the Environment | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it

“the urban landscape is now larger than the rural landscape. I was looking at how much wasted rooftop space there is across the world…and it seemed crazy not to use that wasted space to be more sustainable and grow food. It motivated me to find a solution for rooftops…and alternative ways of producing food that’s more local.” Alan Joaquin, Founder of FarmRoof®
