... The concrete jungle that is. And being that it is a jungle of sorts, everyone knows that the hustle and bustle of city life, especially in the one and only New York City, rests between the two extremes of homey and outright intimidating. But residents of the city take it in strides, and in fact find ways of taking back their food, in a space that most might think has no potential for producing anything of ones own, vegetable-wise. Martina is such a resident. A graphic designer, living in a city apartment, she established her own personal patio farm enclosure, she dubs "Farmtina".
From "Farmtina," Martina says that she grows "enough food to feed herself through the whole summer," which is saying something about a modest patio farm in the heart of the Big Apple. She may struggle a bit when it comes to obtaining her supplies, but she gets it done, and has chipped out a pretty good operation for herself. If she can thrive off of her own garden there, then just about anybody can do it where they live. With a little sweat, and a "can do" attitude, you'll be scarfing down fresh carrots and tomatoes in no time :-)
I'll let Martina speak for herself.... Watch the video below and sharpen those pencils hehe
