Luckily, I'm not a pioneer in gardening in the city, at least not this city. There are online communities, local meetups, conventions, and expos that allow me to connect with other individuals in my area. I've also found numerous local bloggers who write about their personal gardening trial and errors.
The people, online or in person, are the greatest resource I have when gardening in my city home. To find local gardeners in your area I recommend checking out:
- iVillage's Gardening Forums
- The Bulletin Board at your local nursery, food co-op, or community garden
Don't forget about using Google. By typing in my city and phrases like, "organic gardening", "permaculture", "urban agriculture" and "urban farming" I found a local agriculture club and the local Master Gardener's office.
Have you found other local gardener's to be a resource? How did you connect with them?
