John Herridge holds a Masters degree in Chemical Engineering and spent his early career in the Polymers Industry. He spent many years as a Marketing/Technical Consultant in that field. In recent years, he became interested in backyard gardening and recognized the advantages in nutrition, cost savings and security that it offered. In a collaboration with an old friend, he added his expertise in Materials and Engineering to a project to improve the home gardening experience. He has many ideas for future improvements for urban gardens and plans to develop and write about these going forward.
We would like to introduce you to a revolutionary new garden. We call it The Overhead Garden. In it, vegetables grow, climb, and twine upward from a waist high bed onto a permanent wire arch that reaches over your head.This garden produces high yields in small spaces, requires much less effort than any other garden design, conserves water consumption, and greatly reduces pest and weed problems.
