About this book

Want to grow food but have nothing larger than a balcony, windowsill or a piece of wall? No problem! This is a gardening book with a difference. It will help you to grow your own fruit, vegetables, herbs and even mushrooms in small spaces in the most ecological way possible. Edible Cities shows you why the urban landscape can be a great place for permaculture. You can discover inside principles of permaculture, ideas for flats and balconies, along with urban case studies from all over the world.

Packed with inspiration and practical, fully-illustrated ideas, discover how people around the world are inventing new growing opportunities and making them a reality with few resources and a lot of creativity. You can find out how you too can plan and create your own urban growing paradise.
