Profitable backyard gardening in Philadelphia

Although this article doesn't mention our local heroes (Greensgrow), it's an excellent introduction to a concept that I hope continues to grow in the coming years. As we begin to rebuild our economy from this recession, maybe simple locally focused solutions will take the place of some of the "service economy" that pretty much outsourced any productive labor to poor countries. Anyway, it's a good read:

This is a good artical even

This is a good artical even if you just want to grow some food for yourself. You would be suprised how much you can grow in a small space. A good place to start is the book "Square Foot Gardening"
