Urban farming basics: how to grow your own vegetable garden

Many people would love to grow their own food but they lack the time and knowledge to get started on their own. I want to help would-be gardeners focus on the important stuff so they don't waste their time making the same mistakes that I did. Together we'll focus on the following:
  • Choosing the right space
  • Preparing your soil or growing containers
  • Picking right right herbs and veggies for your climate & palate
You can't plough a field in your mind so let's get started!

Todd was very knowledgable and answered all of my questions. He didn't over-complicate anything and gave me a lot of great tips. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Todd if you're a beginner. Not intimidating at all!
