I am trying to collect information about vertical gardens, their cost and schools/organizations that offer training in their maintenance.

Thanks in advance!


This is a subject that is gaining in popularity, especially in urban areas and as the interest in sustainability and high density gardening grows.  Two organizations you might contact for information about courses are the Toronto Urban Growers and the University of Guelph Horticulture open-ed courses:

This Australian horticulture school offers a few on-line course options on vertical gardening:

There are also several Youtube videos online that you will find if you search “vertical gardens”.

And not to forget the printed word, if you look online you will see many titles on this subject which you could then source in your local library:

I hope this gives you a start.  Good luck with your search on this interesting topic.
