We all know what is gardening, but most of might be wondering what is terrace gardening?! Is that just growing plants on terrace? Nah! I will jot down few points on this topic to make it clear and simple further in my writeup.
You might have come across few more terms as urban farming, Kitchen garden etc…
In core all these vary slightly but all the above used terms refer to growing vegetables and fruits in your own premises such as terrace, balcony, open land space etc…
Terrace gardening is set of activities to grow one’s own food on the terrace of the house. We can grow everything from cereals, pulses, herbs, vegetables and fruits.
With various limitations people prefer to grow vegetables and fruits. Simply as name indicates growing these veggies and fruits on terrace gives its name, likewise it is balcony gardening and land gardening where piece of land around the house is used to grow one’s own food.
In terrace gardening and balcony gardening mostly, the plants are grown in the containers available in the market, like clay pot and plastic pot. Again it has its own drawbacks and then Grow bags and Planter boxes come in picture which are scientifically designed with huge research.
Wondering what it is? Just have a look at the picture, come on scroll down
With rapid urbanization and food adulteration, Terrace gardening/ Balcony gardening is the most feasible option to stay healthy with healthy food and to maintain the ecosystem with adding green to one’s life.
After all our future generation have to live here on mother earth and its our responsibility to maintain the ecosystem!!
Terrace Gardening and waste management
With terrace gardening we not only grow our food but also contribute to waste management and by recycling the food waste.
We have many composting units available in the market to recycle the food waste
Again, we get this organic manure with this practice.
Terrace gardening, balcony gardening, land gardens all these come under urban farming.
Urban farming is nothing but growing herbs, vegetables and fruits in cities.
Urban farming is not just growing one’s own food but it is more of incorporating the green lifestyle.
Its time to GO GREEN by GROW GREEN !!
