Growing Gardens When You Have No Land

Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis are proving gardens can be grown anywhere. You just need to think outside the box.



The soil in the Truck Farm’s bed is not just regular dirt! They used a special blend of styrofoam, gel, organics, and clay making it lightweight.

I've gardened in pots on a 4'x4' stair landing before. And now, even though I have 5 acres, I still garden in pots on my deck as well as my large "in ground" garden. Have any of you had to garden when you had no land?

  1. I love the truck garden!

    Our next big thing will be to try gutter gardening, as soon as we can get our hands on some scrap guttering. You can nail up guttering anywhere: on the inside of a privacy fence, on the side of a utility shed, on the foundation of your home, or even on a fence built just for the lengths of guttering, then you fill them with dirt and plant shallow growing crops like lettuce, radishes, etc. Or flowers. HERE is a link to a photo to give you a better idea what it looks like. Done right, it can bet much prettier than this.

  2. Annie I've heard of gutter gardening and have been thinking about trying it indoors during the winter to grow herbs. I have no window sills, so I've been trying to come up with a way to hang them from the area where the top and bottom window meets (where the window lock is). You have any ideas?

  3. the truck garden is pretty neat idea. i wonder, is the garden removable and so you still use the truck bed for hauling stuff when you buy items from the store?
