35 Garden Ideas to Get You Growing

Hello, lovely Eat Drink Better readers! When I’m not talking about delicious food over here at EDB, I work as co-director at another site on the Important Media Network: Crafting a Green World. This week, CAGW is hosting a Garden Week that’s packed with DIY gardening goodness, and Eat Drink Better is participating. This roundup of awesome gardening ideas and inspiration is our contribution to Garden Week.

Growing even some of your own fruit, vegetables, and herbs is a great way to reduce your foodprint. So much of the food that we buy travels hundreds or even thousands of miles from farm to plate, and anything we can do to reduce that distance is good for the planet and good for us. In case you need a little bit of inspiration to get you growing, I’ve rounded up this ultimate list of garden ideas for you!

From small-space gardening to specific plants to plain old eye candy, we’ve got garden ideas to satisfy all of your spring gardening desires!
