How to garden in a small space

Lacking space for a garden shouldn't be an excuse. There are so many options that I have discovered from containers to also building a vertical garden that would go up a wall of your house or a fence. What we want to do vertically, which I think is a great idea, is finds something that can be attached to the wall, something that can hold soil, and you will find that you can things, vegetables, probably not fruit ,in a vertical way. And then you can also fruit trees for example, in pots or containers as we call them and , go for it.

Eco Dad

Steven was born and grew up in Southern California. His parents were from Lebanon and had lived in a village and a society that was very in tune with nature and the natural cycles of their surroundings, and very self sufficient with growing food. At a young age he was attracted to his mother’s gardening passion and her magical ways of growing food. In 1970 he was graduating from high school, and the first Earth Day was April of that year. Earth Day made a positive change in the way he saw the planet, the air, water, population and our waste. He started wondering how we can live in our natural world with balance and less damage. Steven has a Bachelor of Science degree in
 Horticultural and Agricultural Sciences. After college, he volunteered for the Peace Corps and spent two years working in Colombia, South America.

In 1999, he and his wife helped found Seven Arrows Elementary School in Pacific Palisades, California, where both of their children attended K-6. Steven created the school’s edible garden and taught gardening and cooking to the students. He also started the Environmental/Green Committee that helped the school act daily in “green thinking” ways. He loves to be outdoors, hiking, biking, surfing, camping, skiing, playing tennis and anything else to challenge his mind and body.
