Experiments in small space gardening in Mexico City

The urban gardeners from Mexico City’s Huerto Romita share their experiments in square foot gardening, DIY vertical gardens, permaculture, herb spirals, hydroponics, rainwater catchment, and vermicomposting.

Nice to see something positive about life in Mexico City. Just don’t get run over by the DHS delivery van. The simple roof water separation system was great to see.

Yes Hidroponics is very wasteful. They should turn that system into an aquaponics system so they can reuse the water, grow fish and end up with 3X the growth. Check Murray Hallam for his method. Also not far away are the Chinamapas which is essentially the same thing only it includes earth and fungi without a pump. Look up the Chinampas of Xochimilco.
