REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Incorporating vegetables into the urban or industrial landscape is not as difficult as it may seem. As with ornamental and perennial plants, placement, light, and spacing between plants are critical to the success of a vegetable garden. What is great about working in urban spaces is that you can take an untraditional approach to vegetable production by installing raised-beds or using containers anywhere on your property that receives at least four and a half hours of light.
More industrial or commercial spaces can incorporate edible landscapes by using plants that grow as a woody shrub or tree, such as blueberries or apple trees in large planters. These plants have the potential to fit within the context of a more industrialized landscape without needing an extraordinary level of additional care. By planting fruit trees in large planters you avoid smashed fruit on concrete or rocks and contain the fruit within the planters away from walkways.
