Container Gardens

For those of us who live in a apartment buildings or small town homes without a yard, growing our own vegetables may not seem like a real option. But growing vegetables and herbs in containers or buckets is fun and easy. Directions on starting a container garden can be found here.

Seattle’s Urban Land Army is an excellent local resource for container gardening.  This organization sponsors bucket brigades throughout the spring and summer months.   Bucket Brigade are community events that rescue unused buckets, plants them up with veggies, and gives them to the people!  Find out more about Bucket Bridages here.
