Thanks for bringing this back to the top, I missed it first time around.

Looks good, and I like the way it can involve kids

I will now be doing this in my garden, I've ran out of places to grow things and when I saw this I thought great idea!!

I'm looking forward to a decent harvest this year though, got chillies, tomatoes, onions, garlic, few varieties of potatoes, blueberries, blackcurrants, gooseberries, redcurrants erm loadsa herbs, and we had rhubarb crumble for tonights desert mmmm

:wink: anyway I think I'll make a video at harvest time and throw it on youtube :grin:

So no-one is interested in forest farming then? Contrary to believe, it is not the farming of forests...

I am very interested in the maximising of space.

enegiss: if you live in a concrete jungle then pots are the way forward my friend

Farmer: I'm also very interested in the maximising of space. I think to get the absolute most out of a space, think in 3D; use different canopy layers and get as much as you can on those walls / fences. The wall or fence around your property represents a huge are which is mostly unused.

Anyone following this thread might be interested in compost tea, this guy swears by it and I can see why:
