WHAT WE DO
Are you yearning for more green in the city? Do you sometimes feel like digging your hands in the dirt after a few hours of sitting behind the computer? Do you dream of growing your own organic vegetables but have no idea how to go about it? You are in the right place: creating your own mini urban farm is not only fun, it’s surprisingly easy! You don’t need a huge garden or extremely green fingers to begin. All you need is a windowsill, a balcony, a little plot of land or a roof terrace plus a healthy dose of enthusiasm. You are also welcome here if you’ve already started growing your own food but could use a bit of advice and know-how.
Cityplot is a non-profit making entity that promotes the spread of organic food production in cities via workshops, trainings and the provision of companion seed packages. We are a collective of volunteers working for the benefit of local communities by providing a variety of straightforward information about urban farming. We work with a pool of experts who can provide workshops and trainings for beginning and intermediate gardeners as on a variety of different subjects including:
- designing, planting and maintaining a (community) garden
- container, balcony and windowsill gardening
- soil, composting and mulching
- dealing with weeds and pests
- composting techniques (including worm composting, or vermiculture)
- creating your own permaculture herb spiral
- creating a bee and butterfly-friendly garden
- ‘forgotten’ vegetables
- heritage plants
- plant propagation and seed saving
- pruning fruit trees and berry bushes
- harvesting and preserving food
- using wild plants
- extending the growing season
We are also happy to work with you in designing a workshop, or series of workshops, that suits all of your food growing needs! And if you’re eager to get started, you can check out our seed boxes and other products.
