Guest: Andrea Bellamy, Author: Small Space Vegetable Gardens Veggie & Edibles
I grew up in a rural area outside Vancouver, BC, surrounded by forests and fields. My mom gardened, but grew mainly ornamentals. I have been gardening alongside her since childhood. When I moved out and moved to the city, I found myself with a roof top balcony – and no soil. So I grew in containers, and slowly learned the best ways to have a productive and beautiful container garden. Since then, always on the lookout for more gardening space in the city, I have gardened on balconies, boulevards, patios, and city land, and in community garden beds, window boxes, traffic circles, and front and backyards. I currently garden on a small city lot. I have an English degree and a certificate in Garden Design, but I work in communications. I have a 7-year-old daughter and am expecting my second in January 2015. I'm passionate about growing delicious food and sharing it with others.
