Grow Your Own Food

Seattle has a new guide to growing vegetables in the city. Growing Food in the City (PDF) shows you how to increase your garden’s bounty while helping you conserve water and keep pesticides out of local waterways.

Ideal for beginner gardeners, the guide shows you how to build raised beds, grow food in containers, use vertical space, plant and transplant, and prepare your soil for planting the chemical-free way. There is also a calendar for planting the easiest vegetable crops and a list of local resources.

Growing Food in the City (PDF) will start you on your way to growing your own food.
