Kitchen Garden
Kitchen gardens were designed to be low maintenance and aesthetically beautiful, with lots of edible perennials. The area available for kitchen garden is very small, so only a few small beds of vegetables, supplemented with narrow strips here and there are available along the boundary wall, and other locations. Many plants, such as lettuce, celery, ginger, potatoes, bean sprouts, garlic, and onions, can be grown from kitchen scraps. Bonus: Indoor plants help improve air quality.

The ultimate sustainable kitchen is one that encourages green living beyond just counter materials and appliances, and it all starts during the design phase.
