It will help you to grow your own fruit, vegetables, herbs and even mushrooms in small spaces in the most ecological way possible.

Review quote

Edible Cities aims to inspire urban residents to incorporate nature, preferably the edible variety, into their lives. The authors, ardent permaculturists inspired by their study with Sepp Holzer (who also wrote the foreword to the book) believe that growing plants is possible for anyone with a balcony, rooftop, or even just a windowsill. To that end, they offer a broad overview of permaculture followed by numerous examples of how it is implemented in ways both beautiful and delicious. Joan Bailey, food and farm blogger in Japan
