Make your own vegetable garden growing in big cities is now possible, even if you live in a flat !
I will deal here with a topic which take more and more place in our cities : shared vegetable gardens. They are often implanted on a public or private space that some people share.
Most of the time, it's inhabitants of the neighbourhood who take care of the garden.
They use it in mainly different ways : sometimes it's next to some social buildings in order to help people who don't have so much money. It is also used in a pedagogic way, when schools create educative activities for children. A lot of them are used by a neighbourhood association but sometimes it's also just temporary, on a wild land space.

Welcome my friend
I am pretty sure you heard a lot of talk about the vegetarian diet by now?
You think is just the new fashion and it will be over soon?
I am happy to say to you, it is not the case.
It is necessary to understand the initiative behind the concept to stop to eat meat and animals products. If you want to know why, I invite you to follow me in this article I have written specially for you. Yes, because not long time ago, I was like you, I ate meat without knowing the impact of my nutrition. I hope to answer your questions and open your mind to approach people who criticize without know the sense.
For as long as I can remember I am veg. I cannont count how many crisis happened dur ing lunch time because i didn’t want to eat my meat when i was a child.
Everything disgusted me, the taste, the bloody color, the texture and the most important thing was how I was socked to eat another living being as if it was normal to have pets and to eat others.
When I was arround 6 I asked What is the rules ? Who decide which animals we eat or not ? The only answer that I ha dis : « It is like that do not try to win time and deal with me eat your meat now » !
Some of you know how it is hard to be the only veg when you are young in a family, to convince that is not a child’s whim. Of course it was easier when you grown up to impose your opinion.
But in my small city to be veg meant you are an alien, all the time you have to explain whay you decided to do it ?
In my case it wasn’t a decision it was impossible to eat meat.
Then I realised also how meat industry treat animals and how the meat that you can buy are polluted. I mean when you go to supermarkets to buy your steak most of the time you eat poison. The mains companies don’t follow the animals and antipollution ethics, and thanks to the industry who produce a lot but bad quality (so cheap meat) the butcher in your street cannot practice the same prices, he has to close and leave the monopoly to the big companies.
This is for all these reasons and more that to be vegetarian is a questions of responsability.
