Sack Gardening, an Anti-desertification Tool

Introduction: Sack Gardening, an Anti-desertification Tool

About: Honorary Professor University Ghent

Growing vegetables and fruits in sacks has a growing popularity.  In desertified drylands all these food crops can be grown better than in the poor soils.  Therefore, sack gardening is a splendid anti-desertification tool.  It can be recommended for programmes and projects aiming at reducing famine, hunger, malnutrition and poverty.

    I could use something like this. I live in western Nebraska and my back yard has not been planted (we rent) so something like this could be a quick way to get some plnat life back there. Thank you so much for the idea.

    A lot of people in developing countries (and I don't mean Nebraska ! LOL) are not gardening anymore in poor soils, but in different containers, e.g. sacks, buckets, tub, kiddle pools, etc. I wish you a lot of success;
