Community Permaculture Gardens

We can change the way that we produce what humans need to thrive.  We can create systems of production that heal nature and produce abundance – ending poverty. And it all begins with each of us building new relationships with the people, plants and creatures around us.

In Organic Landscape Design we work with the relationships between the many species that make up our environment. The technique is based on “Sheet Mulching” and the basic unit of design is the “Key Hole Bed”:

We had 3 community gardens demonstrating this technique in 2009 and 7 in 2010. Each of the gardens had different starting conditions and varying materials in the sheet mulch but all of them produced an abundance of vegetables. For 2011 we are open to help with new community gardens – or – help you apply this technique on your own property. Right click on the pictures below to see each of the gardens.
