Urban Edible Gardening

Living in a city, especially a very populous one like Kuala Lumpur, often means being cut off from the source of one's food - unless you're lucky enough to have a garden.
But there are other ways to grow your own fruit and vegetables, even if you are confined to a tiny apartment space. Urban and edible gardening is for the urban individuals who want to embrace growing their own food while being with their community - be it through a balcony garden, or more unconventional means.
We spoke to a couple of experts of the matter about utilising the urban public spaces through gardening and making our city a greener city.
