Tiny Boat Greenhouse

Thanks to Riobhne for the suggestion to share blog updates on growing projects. To get the ball rolling here’s my growing project.

I’ve started work on a tiny growing space in London using an old boat from the 70s that I also live on for part of the year. So far this has involved building a greenhouse frame on the back of the boat:

Next up I need to secure the greenhouse a bit better and I’m then planning on maximising the use of space by creating vertical planters out of old plastic bottles. A bit like this:

I’m planning to turn the boat into a shop selling plants, books and maybe coffee too… with the coffee grounds potentially used to grow mushrooms.

Here’s an artists impression of what it might end up looking like:

I’ll post more pictures as the project develops. You can also follow the project in more detail at: permacultureboat.com
