Think you can’t garden because all you have is a fire escape? Mike Lieberman of Urban Organic Gardener will set you straight in this guest post! Thanks, Mike. It was the Spring of 2009 when I first started urban gardening.
Vertical gardening is a fun, creative way to grow plants in urban spaces! Below is just a sample of what you can create using vertical gardening systems and kits. The first few images are of GroVert Vertical Gardening Systems by Bright Green. There are two different sized panels (10 and 45), and each are planted, then hung on the wall using their included mounting bracket. The last images are of living walls made from felt pockets . These ‘pockets’ are very easy to install and plant.
