Urban Permaculture At Its Best

Follow Geoff Lawton as he shows us around a beautiful and amazing urban garden. An example of permaculture design is used throughout the small city patch, which feels like a mini forest as we are lead through the various areas. Each aspect of the garden has many functions. There are edible plants for the grower with zero food miles, a place to reuse waste from the kitchen by creating compost and a beautiful garden that can be seen from within the home. Featured in the well planned design is a herb garden that enables picking from any angle. There are raised pots attached to the wall, which makes use of the shadiest area of the garden while still allowing the plants to get sunlight and varying heights of plants which means no space is left unused.
