Have you always wanted to grow your own food, but you don't know how to get started? 

We know finding space to grow in a city can be tricky. At Food Up Front we think it's a fun challenge and encourage our gardeners to grow any place that works - backyard, front yard, porch, balcony, or sidewalk planters. Many vegetables grow best in sun, but some prefer a little shade. So the possibilities are endless! Just make sure if you're planting near a tree, be extra careful not to dig up or damage any roots. 

Once you've selected your site, you need to decide what to plant! Learn more about how to grow your own food below.
