Jane’s Delicious Urban Gardening is packed with inspirational ideas and practical information on all aspects of urban eco living.

  • Growing organic vegetables just about anywhere – from containers to edible walls, from raised beds to rooftops, from community gardens to neglected pavements
  • Planting and maintaining a space-efficient urban orchard
  • Converting an existing lawn or tennis court into an instant edible oasis
  • keeping urban bees, hens and aquaponic tanks
  • harvesting rainwater and recycling grey water
  • introducing solar power into your home
