Bexley Farmers' Market: June 11th

"When I’m helping someone set up a container garden, the first thing I look at is sunlight. That is the number one limiting factor as far as what’s possible"

- Meredith Sheperd, founder of urban agriculture firm Love & Carrots

Container Gardening, the Next Best Option!

We understand that not everyone has a yard to grow their own fruits and vegetables in. Fertile soil can also be hard to come by as well! Look no further than your next best growing option of container gardening! Modern Farmer's Dan Nosowitz has written a great article covering the basics of container gardening. In his article, he speaks with Meredith Sheperd, the founder of the urban agriculture firm Love and Carrots, on her thoughts of container gardening.

Throughout the article, read over these topics:

  • The Importance of the Sun
  • Container Selection
  • Container Set-up
  • Soil
  • Watering
