If you’ve been wondering how I began urban gardening. Basically, just dived in. 🙂
I really don’t have any idea where my experimenting and stubbornness would lead me! All I know is that I need to start right away or the interest will fade!
The fact was, I really don’t have any idea where my experimenting and stubbornness would lead me! All I know is that I need to start right away or the interest will fade!
Take a look at these first crazy pictures!
I occupied a portion of my mom’s orchid garden to set up my first hydroponics set up using PVC pipes (Picture 1 above) The frame was made out of metal cut out from previous house renovation materials. I asked a welder to piece together a vertical pipe holder.
This second mini green house (I called Orange House) demanded more experimenting from me. I have to learn a bit of carpentry, plumbing and even woodworking just to piece together a ton of recyclable materials! Of course I can ask a skilled worker to this for me, but well I’ve got time (and fat) to burn anyway.
I gathered all the gardening needs I could think of and immediately started sowing seeds. Haste? Maybe. Like I said I wanted to start right away before my enthusiasm and excitement wanes. I’ll just get the readings and science once I got the “farm” running!
So for me, once I got sufficient recyclable materials collected, I immediately constructed my “farm”. I read urban gardening, hydroponics, aquaponics and organic agriculture “along the way”!
