My dear Izhar;
How much in your opinion is the minimum space required for year around supply of vegetables for a small family of 4-5 and if it is going to be a container garden, then how many 14 inch pots?
The next question will follow your answer.

In my library I have a book, THE ALLOTMENT BOOK published by Sampson Low, Berkshire House, Queens Street,Maidenhead, Berkshire SL6 1NF.
I think it is very good for those who are really interested.
In my earnest opinion, such workshops are just a good outing.

Yes Sir, it is definitely an outing or picnic sort of.. where people come with family, enjoy the farm, have good food and along with all these they learn the basics of gardening, their queries are answered then and there... its very good activity for the kids also.... who nowadays must be taught that there is a world outside the screen of their tablets, cell phones and laptops....
