Urban Gardening involves growing food and ornamentals in small spaces. Whether you have a huge yard without the time or desire to tend it all, or an apartment with no outdoor space, this talk presented by Gretel Anspach will give you tips and techniques to start and maintain a garden you can call your own. In this survey Gretel will cover considering alternatives to the standard sources for light, water and nutrients that plants need, for people who don’t have much space, or perhaps no yards at all. It touches on container gardening and hydroponics.
