Urban Gardener

By Sheniqua Faulkner
In Guide, Style

With the right tools and a little creativity, even city dwellers can get growing this spring.

 

> Even if the only land you own is a window box or a small patch of soil, you can grow your own bountiful and beautiful garden this season. Whether you plant mood-uplifting blooms, sow herbs to add fresh flavor to everyday dishes or grow your own organic fruits and veggies (talk about eating locally), you dont need a green thumb; you just need a few supplies and the desire to get your hands a little dirty.
