Living in a flat doesn’t mean you can’t cultivate your own small patch of earth. Gardens come in all shapes and sizes and there are a range of veggies, herbs, fruits and so on that are just right for your living space. Not only will you score a beautiful balcony garden, you’ll enjoy the benefits of gardening to feed the body and nourish the soul. As counter-intuitive as it sounds, urban gardening is much easier than you might imagine.

This documentary alleges it all boils down to a simple substance most of us consume every day: SUGAR.
