All About Urban Agriculture: Tips and Tricks for a Successful City Vegetable Garden

Urban Forest

Why should we coexist with pollinating insects in urban areas? How can we avoid wasting our vegetables? Is it possible to grow a vegetable garden on your balcony? Come meet the team behind Société pour l’action, l’éducation et la sensibilisation environnementale de Montréal (SAESEM) at their Urban Forest kiosk every Thursday at noon and learn more about urban agriculture.
