Transplanting and Interplanting. Getting the Most Out of Limited Space – The Urban Farmer – Week 6

The Urban Farmer Week 6









Notes from Week 6

  • Inter-planting can help you maximize your use of space, something that can be important when space on an urban farm is limited.
  • Urban environments are filled with a lot of microclimates.  All of the buildings and roads have a lot of thermal mass which can hold heat.
  • Look at crop selection.  You just can’t grow everything.  Curtis tends to focus on crops that have long seasons with continual harvest and take up a small amount of space.
