Growing heirloom vegetables on city rooftops
« on: March 11, 2008, 06:31:19 PM »
A few of us who live in the city of Chicago are trying to grow heirloom vegetables on our rooftops in cheap homemade earthboxes.  It sounds more than a little preposterous to suggest that what we're doing is a real solution to the huge environmental problems we're facing, but it might be a tiny piece.  We think they're a great way to build connections in a fragmented social/political landscape.

Not selling anything, I'm giving "it" away.

Here's the Flickr link, along side the pics is a little how-to guide with plenty of links.
