Vertical Gardening with The Plant Charmer Part 2
This is Part 2 of my epic interview with The Plant Charmer. If you are wondering who The Plant Charmer is, his name is Khaled Majouji, and he is an urban farmer in Canada. Khaled grows an incredible amount of vegetables in vertical garden systems, and he inspired me to build my vertical garden systems this year. To learn more about The Plant Charmer‘s background and beginnings, please check out Season 1, Episode 15 of the Small Scale Life Podcast.
In this episode of the Small Scale Life Podcast, Khaled and I discussed the following topics:
- His current property – size and layout
- His vertical gardening system with a focus on the strawberry fence
- Soil and amendments
- Selling products
- Expansion and vision for a larger operation
- Instagram tips – how to grow your followers

Now that there's less food available out there 🍅🍒🍎, I'm finding birds more and more often going for my berries🍓! Caught a huge blue jay 🐦 in the #berryfence yesterday and a flock of small birds 🐤 today! Also found a small bird stuck in my netting which I freed, if you use netting, check your nets! 💪🚀🍓
Thank You and Call to Action
It was great having Khaled on the show, and I appreciate the time he spent talking to me. A couple weeks ago, Khaled found a 10-acre plot to expand In.Genius Farms and finalized the deal for the property. The battle is not over, however! Khaled needs funds to set up this operation, so go to his Go Fund Me and donate today to help him realize his dream!
I would also like to thank Austin from Beatsby_Roi for providing permission for using the song “Steady Wzdm” from The Lemon Water Chronicles, Volume 1, on the podcast. I would also like to thank Dillon from The Soapbox Collective Podcast for helping to connect with Austin.
