If you always thought your space was too small to start a garden, we're here to prove you wrong!

When you learn how to grow your own fruits and vegetables, you're in charge of how they are taken care of, when they are harvested and how long it takes to go from garden to table. Unlike produce from the grocery store, where there is no way to know how long the cucumbers have been sitting out, how many people have squeezed the tomatoes or what chemicals were sprayed on the strawberries.

This course will teach you:

  • how to choose the best fruits and vegetables for small space gardening
  • how to fill each space with the most productive and practical plants
  • the best information for first-time urban gardening
  • how to plant so that your harvest will be successful
  • techniques for preparing soil and producing your plants
  • ideas on the best containers for your space

You are in control of your health, so why not start being in control of your own produce? Begin your fruitful journey into small space gardening today!
