How to grow food (and other stuff) in the heart of the city.

Soil is limited. Space is valuable. Is it possible to grow your own food if you live in an urban environment?

We will look at options in urban agriculture - shared space, allotments, living roofs and walls, vertical gardens and hydroponics. We will investigate ways to grow plants at school, and hopefully set up systems that can be used in the future. We may even have time to grow something yummy for Christmas!
