Are you tired of Consuming inorganic and  high-priced vegetables from the market? If yes, then a kitchen gardening is the perfect solution to your problems. The idea of having your own garden is very alluring.
Although for People having very little or no space seems to be unreal but it isn’t. A roof of their own houses can be turned into something more valuable than just an empty space. Terraces are a great spot to start your own garden with ample of sunlight for the plants.
Imagine taking a sip of coffee, listening the blowing sound of wind with fresh atmosphere on your own terrace surrounded by many beautiful plants. It really feels amazing. Right?  Not only this, we can also get healthy, organic and delicious vegetables grown in our own terrace by reusing an old buckets, few sacks with good soil, crates and planting materials. Many problems may arise in our way like : weight of soil and planting pots may cause problems for overall building.  similarly, water supply problem may arise. There is a proverb, ” Where there is a will, there is a way.”  Following it, we should solve those problems. Weight problem can be solved somehow by reducing amount of soil and using lighter pots. Similarly water supply issue can be solved by collecting rainwater. When your hardwork pays off, it gives you immense pleasure which lying down on bed and watching series would never give.
Really, Rooftop gardening not only fulfill our needs but also gives inner satisfaction as well as helps to solve food crisis problem somehow.
