NYC apartment gardening: Kitchen gardens for small spaces

You don’t need a backyard, balcony or even a rooftop to start a garden this spring! You’re probably not a New Yorker because of your passionate love of nature and all things outdoors, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up a little green thumb. Your kitchen/living room can become a garden, too, with just a little effort.

“It’s a great way to get hands-on and connect with your food from the seed to the table — and extra satisfying to prepare a meal with food you have grown yourself,” says Nikhil Arora, co-founder of Back to the Roots, which makes at-home gardening kits. “Fresh, homegrown herbs also taste great, maintain the most nutrients, and help avoid food waste from over-purchasing at the grocery store.”

Do something for the environment, your mouth and your kitchen — a garden looks impressive and check out these products and tips for growing plants inside your apartment, no matter how small it really is!
