Do It Yourself Vertical Garden Guide from Survival Life



A do it yourself vertical garden can be created with a little imagination and some guidance from the experts. Survival Life and Managing Editor ‘Above Average’ Joe have produced a Special Report to help people make the most of the space they have, and enjoy the benefits of growing their own food.

Growing Up: The Ins and Outs of Up and Down Gardening is the blueprint for growing all the produce a family could eat in a fraction of the space they think they might need. Vertical gardening is all about constructing practical and inexpensive planting systems that are just as good as a large plot of soil, and sometimes even more so. As little as two square feet of space, up to an average ceiling height, indoors or out, can be enough to grow an entire season’s worth of food.

There’s no denying the fact that more of the population lives in urban areas, where land is at a premium. With more apartment-style living comes fewer yards, and fewer opportunities to plant gardens. Growing Up will show people how easy it can be to become farmers without any acreage to speak of.

With vertical gardening, farmers actually have better control of their crops. They can extend the life and yield potential of almost everything they plant, giving them fresh food longer than traditional, Mother Nature-dependent farmers. Manipulating the water, light, and size of vertical garden plants gives far more control over the final outcome.

Any productive garden needs care and attention, but with a vertical garden there’s no need for expensive tools, back-breaking work, or protection from nature and the elements. Growing Up will share the best techniques for creating the most successful yet inexpensive growing systems. Vertical gardens can be set up in an afternoon, with far less time and money spent on a large plot of land.

Ultimately, a food supply grown in a vertical garden could become a life-saving decision. Should a major disaster hit an area, the supply lines of grocery stores and super markets would easily be disrupted. Those who are already growing their own food in a controlled environment won’t have to worry about going hungry.

Potential farmers can spend a small fortune trying to make a vertical garden themselves, or they can consult a guide that will talk them through the best ways to do it. Creating a do it yourself vertical garden is a simple process with the help of Growing Up: The Ins and Outs of Up and Down Gardening.
