Yes we can: Grow your own food in your indoor garden (even in a small apartment!)

Britta Riley's urban window gardens

It’s all about independence. When you can no longer trust the system to deliver healthy, non-contaminated food, take charge! Grow your own.

But it’s winter, so now what do you do? We have good news: Even if you live in a small apartment, you can still have home-grown food from an indoor garden.

Britta Riley wanted to take that route. So she and her friends made a community project out of it, experimenting with various systems, using social media to compare notes and tweaking them to quickly find the best way to grow. “Call it distributed DIY.”

They even doubled their goodness by using recycled plastic bottles.

In her TED talk, Britta Riley tells us how she did it.

What do you think? Will you try this at home? Have you already started your indoor victory garden? Tell us in the comments.
