As a journalist reporting on urban agriculture and
microfarming I wish to write about community gardens using hydroponic and
aquaponic techniques to grow food plants. For example, a group of
apartment owners in Singapore has a hydroponic community garden on their
apartment building rooftop. It is the focus for group events in
planting, tending and harvesting. A social club of the rooftop community
group operates from a meeting room close by.
A community garden group developing in my home city
of Brisbane, Australia, is planning organic hydroponics and aquaponics as well
as traditional soil growing of plants.
Surely others are doing similar things in community
gardening in North America and Europe ? I'd be most greatful for help in
