Regardless of where you live, if you are planning for a survival moment or just want to live a life that is not dependent on the grocery story, growing your food is both rewarding and helps wean you off that dependence.
One major challenge to growing your own food if you live in an urban area, however, is space.
Most who live in a city do not have the space necessary to grow much, so they choose to grow plants in communal gardens. Even though this is a great idea, in a survival situation, having a common garden would quickly become useless as desperate people would take what they need – even your food.
With planning, however, you can grow vegetables and fruit in very limited spaces. By setting up your growing plot with a sense of “footprint,” you can use options like growing vertically or planting in bunches.
