What do you need to start urban gardening?

    First and foremost, you need space.  If you have some outdoor space of your own, great!  If not, you’ll have to plant in pots indoors or start a community garden (or get a plot in one that already exists).  Whether the space is indoor or out, make sure it gets a lot of sun (or invest in solar lamps, if sun isn’t an option).  Once you have a spot picked out, you’ll need seeds.  Pick seeds that will fit in the space you have and are suited to your climate (if you’re gardening indoors, this might limit your options, but outdoors, most vegetable plants will work fine).  Another thing you should have is a compost bucket.  One of the great things about gardening is it gives you something to do with all your fruit and vegetable peels, coffee grounds, fingernails, etc.  Compost is essential to providing your plants with adequate nutrition.

    The hardest thing to come by is space.  If you are lucky enough to have a large balcony or area to garden on a roof, then you are set.  But community gardens are a great alternative.  Not only can you garden, but it is a great place to make new friends.  Many stores also offer discounts on gardening supplies to those with a plot at a community garden.
