When we think of farming and agriculture, the first thing that would probably pop on our minds is rich vegetation and lush greenery amongst the hills and the mountains. But now, thanks to technology and the new agriculture methods brought about these advancements, farming is now being adapted even by those who are living in the city. Farming is no longer confined in the rurals. It has slowly made its way to the urban landscape.
So you want to make your own mini farm in your backyard? That’s so simple. Your condominium or apartment doesn’t have to stay as a lifeless box of concrete and glass. The good thing also about farming in the city is that you don’t have to give up your urban lifestyle to partake and enjoy farming. To create your own garden, you could start by planting herbs in small pots. Herbs such as oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary are perfect for these small containers. This is recommended for starters by the way. But if you’re the experimental and the garden geek type you could plant seasonal veggies and fruits. Just remember when choosing what to plant, make sure that it won’t take up too much space and maintenance. Keep in mind that you are living in a confined space so it should not eat up a lot of space in your backyard.
Urban farming is slowly becoming popular amongst urban dwellers because it doesn’t only beautify but it also conserves the environment as well. So take pleasure in the joys of gardening and start urban farming now.
