Gardening is a job suitable for every person on the planet
In recent years, gardening has become increasingly popular around the world. Half of the world’s population lives in cities where there is less and less green space. Therefore, the population increasingly decides to cultivate and arrange balconies, small green areas or plots of land (which the municipality usually provides free of charge for use and planting) and plant gardens with useful vegetables, vegetables, flowers, herbs or greenery in general.
In the early 1900s, a movement called Community Gardening emerged. The idea was for people to grow vegetables on a piece of land in an urban environment that they could use later. Today, there are over 18,000 gardens in North America. These gardens are maintained by people who want to grow food and do not have another suitable place for the job (for example a cottage with land, private plots for growing food, etc.). Community gardening has several noble ideas. One of the ideas is a good method for the promotion of healthy living, pointing out the possible harmony with nature in the conditions of the greatest possible urbanization. Proponents of this idea say that organically grown food reduces the community’s reliance on fossil fuels because today most food is transported from large agricultural areas. These gardens are important in communities with a large concentration of population from the lower economic strata. People also gain knowledge about organically grown food, learn a lot about gardening, food production and survival. Gardens exist on terraces, roofs of buildings, in front of residential units and skyscrapers, in abandoned mountain lodges or on abandoned areas.
In the last century, the “guerrilla gardening” movement first appeared in New York during the 1970s. Here are gathered activists who have common goals to beautify the neighborhood, create a sense of belonging to the community, contribute to the community. Sometimes even these activists point to political problems (for example, the lack of interest of local authorities in maintaining public spaces). Encouraged by the idea of ​​arranging and beautifying plots, American artist Lis Crisley gathered neighbors in the 1980s to achieve their goal together. The group grew over time and was named “Green Guerrilla”. The garden became the property of the whole community. The word “guerrilla” means that it is nobody’s land for planting or very inaccessible land on which greenery is not normally maintained. Less demanding plants are used during the dream. In the early 2000s Richard Reynolds one of the activists of this movement founded a web portal. The original idea was to write down and publish ideas and activities to beautify the city. The idea of ​​Richard R. It was created in London has inspired people all over the world. Richard R. believes that guerrilla heritage can sometimes be a means of initiating social change. Sometimes it happened that the police warned members of the movement or punished them. That happened to Ron Finley in Los Angeles when he was planting vegetables in abandoned parking lots. However, the garden was not removed thanks to the petition. The desire for the return of people to nature is especially relevant today in times of illness and weather crises. People are trying to green areas and build houses from natural earth materials. This method of construction has existed since the 16th century. Even a large part of the famous Great Wall of China was built of earth. Earth is one of the remaining resources because people have exhausted a lot of resources over time and alternative solutions are being sought. Traditional techniques of building simple houses mean building houses from materials available to people (for example, the surrounding land). This saves on transportation. Architects who advocate this type of construction say that country houses are very pleasant to live in if they are built properly. Modern knowledge should be combined with the principles of such construction. Social networks (which provide some insight into the overall picture of society on the planet) are also a suitable place to create various groups of like-minded people turned to the idea that living in villages and cities should be directed primarily towards ecology. Because every individual with a little will and effort and with the right idea can do a lot to preserve the planet on which we all live.
Growing your own food and gardening may be available to people who do not have a property or land. A green oasis can even be made on window sills or on a balcony. Tomatoes, peppers, chili peppers, eggplants, spices and herbs, salads, radishes, even chard, zucchini and fruit trees can be easily grown in pots in the garden. Today, there are many varieties of dwarf and columnar fruits that can be easily grown on terraces and balconies in slightly larger pots.
For growing on window sills, we choose extremely low varieties of tomatoes that grow up to some 30-40 cm and grow in glass jars without any problems. On the balcony, low and even higher varieties of tomato varieties can be grown in slightly larger pots.
Some flowers in pots around the house and on window sills can be replaced fried with chili peppers and miniature varieties of tomatoes that don’t need a lot of space. Growers can later have plenty of fruit at their fingertips. It is obligatory to plant flowers in a mini-green oasis that will be an ornament and serve as food for pollinators.


  1. My garden in the Midwest is now producing and I love being able to step out my back door and grab some lettuce or use and herb. I have heard gardening described as praying. I can see that as well. Thanks!
