Urban farming basics: how to grow your own vegetable garden

16 reviews

About this Helpout

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!
