Best websites for hungry gardeners

These websites are for people interested in community gardening, home food preservation, and container gardening.

Communitygarden.org puts people in touch with their community gardens via the American Community Garden Association. Besides providing community outreach and social interaction, volunteers share knowledge about how to cut costs by cultivating food from small plots of land.

Uga.edu/nchfp, the official website for the National Center for Home Food Preservation, offers specifics and precautions about canning, freezing, and storing fruits and vegetables. Readers can learn not only how to can and freeze food but also how to ferment, pickle, cure, and smoke.

Lifeonthebalcony.com shows city dwellers how to grow produce on small decks, patios, and balconies via container gardening. Resources are also available on how to use plants to create privacy and reduce noise.
