Vegetable Gardens Ideas for Small Spaces
Earthboxes are self watering planter boxes which have a water reservoir built into them. They also have a drain outlet so that the container cannot easily be overwatered and often contain a fertilizer band to feed the plants for a entire growing season.
The Earthbox system makes the process of growing flowers or vegetables very easy and very productive. Earthboxes™ are promoted as planters that grow twice the produce with half the water as a traditional system. They are used by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation for just this reason. Read about the United Nation’s use of Earthboxes in The Growing Connection- Cultivating Food, Connecting Minds, Harvesting Hope.
Earthboxes can be purchased with castors and make a great portable gardening system that can be used by anyone, anywhere as long as you have adequate sunlight. They are a great option for people who have no yard space in which to garden but have a deck or patio area.
