Scheduled planting is very important when working with a small growing area.


Planting and cultivating crops involves a solid knowledge of local conditions and plant preferences. This topic covers the timing and specific steps to growing plants from seeds to harvest.  Because urban farmers often have a very small growing area, it's critical to schedule planting and care of crops to maximize harvest throughout the year.

Some urban agriculture takes place in greenhouses or nursery containers, and there are some potential advantages, including fewer concerns about soil contamination, and the ability to control temperature and other aspects of the growing environment.
