Farming in urban environments could be quite a challenge for most people. First of all, the limited space for growing produce is already one challenge. I’m sure those who live in high rise condominiums and apartments could attest to this. But even though the scarcity of space could be an issue, it should not be a reason to stop you from having your very own mini-farm.

Yes, fruits, vegetables, and other products can still be grown even if you have limited space at home. When faced with this kind of space situation, don’t fret. The first thing that you should do is to determine what products to plant. Since you don’t have the abundance of space, choose something that won’t take up a lot of area in your backyard… or balcony for that matter. Don’t plant a ginormous apple or mango tree if your backyard can’t accommodate it.
What you do is to plant small fruits and vegetables like chilis or beans or tomatoes. Planting herbs is also a great idea. The good thing about planting herbs is that it’s very space-saving and you could plant a lot without taking up too much space. There are a lot of herb garden kits available in the market today so it won’t be too hard especially for beginners.
Farming is a great way of being in sync with nature. Growing crops and other produce at the comforts of your own home is a good way to relax and de-stress as well. This is why more and more urbanites are getting into the farming craze. It doesn’t only give them their personal satisfaction, but it also helps mother nature as well. So don’t let your small space stop you from gardening.
