Rubble Gardens

I like all sorts of gardens, no matter where they are made. Here are a few gardens, including a few edible plants, tucked into crumbling concrete crevices in a local alleyway (around Niagara St and Tecumseth in Toronto).

  1. The graffiti’d walls are gorgeous. I like the juxtaposition of the two different forms of creativity – natural and man-made. It looks like a very exciting, buzzy corner, I’d totally hang out there!

  2. I’m so worry about my herb, tomato and peppers on my front lawn, but I still keep growing this year the same way FRONT
    I hope others will do the same , trust……

  3. I love stumbling across produce gardens in unexpected places. Master Gardeners worked with kids at our public library to install raised beds and plant vegetables. Oddly, someone also seems to have planted basil and some melon plants in an ornamental bed along the front of the building; the foliage looks great, and there are melons ready to harvest.

    I hope we see more of this over the coming years as interest in vegetable gardens increases.
