Hi. Nice to meet you. =)

We are university students in Korea, and we are studying English in groups. We want to improve our English, so please give us some feedback.

This is our 1st instructable: Start urban gardening

We hope to start gardening, but there is no sufficient space to grow plants, and also we don't know well about gardening in urban.
Therefore, our English teacher ,Richard, helps us to start it.

If you have difficulties in gardening, refer to our instructables. Let's start!! Follow us~!!

Your English is fantastic (much better than some of the instructables on here where English is the writer's first language...)! I really like your idea to plant your seeds in water bottles. It seems like a really cost effective way to plant! I hope your cabbage grows well!
