You don’t need acres of land to farm. In the Urban Farming Contest, share how you grow or cultivate plants or animals with limited space. Whether it takes place in a small backyard, on a fire escape, or in the couple of feet in front of your kitchen window, we can’t wait to see how you farm.

Winners will take home some fantastic prizes from PlantLink, including a soil moisture sensor, speaker, planters, and more.

Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
