The big suggestions for urban ag in 3rd world countries is for folks to 
take old plastic or burlap bags, fill them with soil/compost, cut slits in 
the bags and then put the plants in the slits.  Supposedly, one can grow 
quite a lot this way and the world is awash in bags that no one wants.  For 
really big plants, one can just fill a bag with soil and then put the plant 
in the top.

Some days, I really appreciate having land! ;-)
