CTA Publications Trench Gardening
Making a trench bed What do you need to start a garden?
- Lots of enthusiasm and, in the beginning, some hard work.
- A piece of ground as little as twenty square metres will ensure that your family always has something fresh to eat; a larger area makes it possible to grow enough vegetables to sell. If you do not have this much space, speak to the people who live around you, find some vacant land and start a community garden. And, if this is not possible, you can try growing vegetables in containers. A few fresh vegetables are better than none at all.
