Vertical Gardens in Sao Carlos

An integral component of urban agriculture is to make cultivatable land where there isn't any.

Much like cities grew vertically to allow more people to live there, urban agriculture tries to take advantage of growing vertically to grow more plants in the same amount of space.

Here are some of the things that my host was doing in Sao Carlos to grow plants where one normally wouldn't be able to. They're not the most complex systems ever, but they are effective and take advantage of reusable materials.
