Living in a big city with limited outdoor space doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy food growing.
In this session we’ll tell you how to grow almost anywhere: from picking the right container and spoil type, to choosing the perfect plants for your space, and caring for your mini garden. By the end of the session, you’ll know what to do next to start growing with the space you have.
