Good websites for tropical vegetable gardening?

rmawhorter(4a Hazelton, BC)August 20, 2008


I'm a novice vegetable gardener up here in N. Canada but I'm going to be moving to Africa in about a year. I would love to find some good websites to learn about tropical gardening ahead of time. I've run across Echo (, which seems to quite extensive and the African Converation Tillage Network ( Do you have any other good bookmarks on this topic?

I live a few miles from Echo which is in N. Ft Myers, Fl. and have been to their garden/nursery. If you ever have a chance to go there before you go to Africa, I would jump on it. I think that gardening in Africa is more than just gardening in the tropics, you have soil and water problems. THey have a lot of information for folks who are going on missionary trips. I would contact them personally so see if they'll they can send you anything specific for the area you are going to.
