I strongly feel that everybody should learn how to grow their own food. While that might sound like a daunting task, it is really quite easy to start and even easier to maintain. And, space restrictions are a “non-issue” because you can vertical garden upright as well as garden from vertical hanging containers. You can also container garden indoors as well as outdoors, and even if you can’t supply all of your own fresh produce, you can certainly provide a lot more than you think you can. So, what does it take to get started?
I’ve included a collection of videos for you to peruse that cover a gamut of various container gardening techniques. Gardening and container gardening is more than just self-sufficiency, which I strongly believe in as well, but it’s also about quality control over the foods you feed your family. While container materials may vary (wood, metal, plastics, glass), please try to always choose organic seeds, organic soil and organic compost as much as possible.

If you search on youtube and the web, you’ll find a plethora of additional ingenious container gardening designs and ideas that can fit anyone’s living space situation, budget and geographical location. I hope this will inspire future green thumbs to take up the self-sufficient, healthy and fun hobby of container gardening.
Bon Veggie Appetit!
