Have A Great Urban Garden?


Resourceful urban dwellers with green thumbs manage to coax some impressive produce out of our concrete jungle. If you need some inspiration, Metrocurean contributor Laura Sears offers up some great tips for city gardening.

If you're one of the many gardeners out there who've overcome city-bound space and soil limitations, we want to see your goods! Are you able to take over your rooftop common space or do you use every inch on your balcony? 

Submit your garden — from tiny window box plots to rowhouse roofs — and we'll choose the best to feature in our summer Great Urban Gardens series.

To submit yours, please send the following information to metrocurean AT gmail.com:

• Your name and neighborhood
• What you grow
• Tips from what you've learned growing food in the city
• Photos of your garden (you posing with your plants also welcome!)

Now go snap some pics of those gardens! We want to see 'em.
