My Organic Kitchen Garden

Several months ago I hosted a dinner party for Eric Ritter, a very talented (and sustainable minded) craftsman from Maine who I will dedicate a post to down the line. He and his wife have transformed a rundown property in Southern Maine into a gorgeous spectacle of architecture and gardening. Eric saw my ample deck space with what I thought was an attractive sitting area and declared it should be repurposed for urban farming. At first my neighbors and I laughed about it, but then it seemed so obvious. How could I live a sustainable life and consider myself a health-conscious foodie without optimizing this space for growing food. Thus I committed my deck space to a shared urban farming venture with my neighbors. With a resident architect and natural green thumb who loves designing and building at the helm we made our shopping list and headed out to Lowe’s for lumber and a local greenhouse for dirt and seedlings to fill our boxes and pots.

During the next several months I will be posting about our foray into vertical agriculture.

Our inspiration.
