Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
According to the Sacramento Bee and other media outlets, Washington, D.C., ranks No. 1 in the country for the best cities for urban gardening. Las Vegas, Phoenix, Seattle and Sacramento rank No. 2 through 5, and rounding out the top 10 are Fresno, Tucson, Milwaukee, El Paso and Denver. The ranking was done by NerdWallet.com.
Many people who live in urban areas are not able to have their own gardens, but some cities designate certain areas – often in unused or vacant lots – where community members are able to plant, water and harvest plants.
Washington, D.C., offers 27 community garden plots for every 10,000 residents; Las Vegas boasts the Vegas Roots Community Garden, where residents can develop a sustainable local food source; and Phoenix offers the Valley Permaculture Alliance, which educates people about the benefits of sustainable desert living. Seattle Tilth focuses on promoting local agriculture and farming, while in Sacramento, the department of Parks and Recreation manages community gardens in several different areas of the city.
SurvivalSeeds4Patriots strongly supports the growth of urban gardening, recommending that people use only open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified, heirloom seeds.
Providing a path to independence and self-sufficiency, SurvivalSeeds4Patriots offers the Liberty Seed Vault. The air-tight metal storage container includes more than 5,400 heirloom seeds from 21 varieties of vegetables including broccoli, spinach, carrots, squash, corn, tomatoes, onions, beets and zucchini. Each order is accompanied by four guides and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
After growing and enjoying these nutritious vegetables, gardeners can use the seeds from the harvest for next year’s crops, so they never have to buy seeds again. The company says that this strategy provides additional benefits because it allows people to be less affected by food shortages and increasing food prices.
