Urban Gardening

The garden is my haven, a place where I can get my hands dirty and grow beautiful green things and forget about the rest of the world.

I grew food on my 9th floor apartment balcony from 2010 to 2015.

In 2012, I was fortunate enough to get a garden plot at a neighbourhood community garden in downtown Ottawa. I stayed there until 2015, which is the year I moved into a house with my partner. Our backyard is small and shady, so in 2016 signed up for another garden plot at a different community garden.

I also mess around with grocery store plants by planting the seeds and seeing what happens. It’s a fun indoor project that anyone can do.
