If you live in an urban area and you grow any kinds of plants on any kind of surface or container, you can call yourself an Urban Gardener! Growing food in a city is a hot topic in urban research. It is also an act that represents many things: it demonstrates our immediate connection to the soil and brings into awareness our dependence on Earth and its natural resources. The recognition of our reliance on the planet, its natural elements and all living beings with which we share this space, is imperative in the face of undeniable climate change. It pushes us to take responsibility for every act and choice we make and drives us to strive towards modesty in every sense. Growing even a bit of our food and herbs in our living space is so much bigger and better than growing nothing. Join the sustainable way of living, start a garden and have fun!
What we offer is some of the most practical growing methods for urban spaces. The container gardening unlocks any living space as a potential growing space. Raised and terraced bed gardening is suitable for a variety of tight spaces as well as bigger gardens.

There is an immense amount of information available on the net about how to grow specific herbs, vegetables and fruits so we are not focused on providing that. We do however give you tips on how to grow productive patches specifically here in tropic climate I Wonder. You can always grow something – certainly not everything but for sure something- that is suitable for your environment and microclimate.
ELEVATED IN TWO WAYS
In all of our planting options, the growing surface is physically elevated off the ground. This in itself brings many advantages to gardening. With the right approach you can maximize yields even in a compact space. Elevated garden is a perfect choice for gardeners with poor or contaminated garden soil and for those who want to make the most out of limited space – be it garden, patio or a balcony.
Beyond its obvious practical advantages there is an effect that gardening has on elevating our emotions and wellbeing. Researchers found that gardening at home had a similar benefit on happiness as biking or walking, it increases the production of good feel neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. It also renders our homes more sustainable and livable!
