Urban Gardening for Beginners

Written by Marc Thoma

OPL BOOK SUMMARY:  Urban dwellers can benefit from a connection with their food. Marc Thoma shares easy ways to create your own indoor or balcony vegetable & fruit garden. Marc guides you on how to start small, plan what to grow, selection of containers, prepare the soil, set up lighting if needed, care for plants, and harvest. Herbs are a great place to start, and the section on herbs explains the needs of each type and the care required.

If you lean more towards a step-by-step process, then turn to chapters 4 and 5 for salad in a container, raised bed veggie garden for the family windowsill garden, herb and scallion centerpiece, and more. Having your own little garden to supplement what you pick up at the farmer’s market is rewarding and delicious.
