Grow Edibles in Small Spaces and Containers
Join Emma Biggs, as she teaches you how to maximize your edible growing space this summer.
With an urban garden packed with 100+ tomato plants and test beds full of other veggies, Emma loves—and needs—to figure out how to fit lots of edible plants into a small space. Get ideas to maximize your in-ground growing space. Learn about wicking beds and successful container gardening. Rethink your yard and property as you hear how Emma transforms a roof and a driveway into an oasis of vegetables over the summer.

Emma Biggs is a 15-year-old gardener and garden communicator. Emma raised over 130 tomato varieties in her Toronto garden in 2019—gardening in containers, in straw bales on a driveway, in a neighbour’s yard, in wicking beds under a walnut tree, and on the garage roof. Her garden is the source of many of her stories—and the source of produce that she sells in her neighborhood. Emma gives talks at libraries, seed exchanges, garden clubs, and garden shows. She is the co-host of The Food Garden Life Radio Show and Podcast, and co-host of kids gardening videos on the From Dirt to Dishes gardening channel on YouTube. She writes a monthly Gen XYZ Edible Gardening blog for Harrowsmith magazine. Her latest book, Gardening with Emma, helps kids find the fun in gardening (and helps adults remember how much fun gardening is!)
