Glad to discover this forum. I'm looking at growing organically indoors and open to tips and recommendations for getting set up. I hope also to contribute with my knowledge of outdoor gardening.

Welcome to Permies! You may find the Urban and Organic discussion areas interesting. I've done a lot of indoor growing and have even written blog posts on it so if you get stuck on something feel free to hit me up.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to dig into the info here on permies. It's nice meeting an experienced indoor grower. Do you have any blog posts that can help me with getting started indoors? I'm in the planning stages right now.

Hi Susan, welcome!
I am nearby in Eastern Ontario and facing the same challenges- how to keep some plants alive in a cold sunroom through the long winter.
I have a few grow lights but of course the garden  centres are all closing for the winter...

Hi Susan ! I'm also in Montreal.

I've played a bit with hydroponics and indoor lights, though I've drown to prefer soil to water for my growing and have thus done most of my growing on my balcony. I'm interested to see what you're playing with.
