Growing food in your garden, in a yard, on a balcony or on your window sill is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Be it strawberries on a balcony, a row of garlic, potatoes grown in old car tires or simply herbs on the kitchen window sill .......
Leading by Example:
The Trafford Eco House is a shining example of what can be achieved with an 'everyday 3-bed mid-war house' in reducing its dependance on fossil fuels for heating, travel and food.
Check out their blog to see innovative ways they are growing their own food through permaculture principles, hydroponics and other 'non-fossil fuel ways of doing everyday things'.
Growing up your Street!:
If you are short of growing space why not follow the example of Incredible Edible Todmorden and plant up any spare land where you live with fruit and vegetables for all to enjoy.
