Urban Garden - Summer 2015

Urban Garden Research

Our 200 Square Meter Urban Design Project

The following brief and design notes were a design process we set ourselves and our students, as part of a research project to see just how much of our daily dietary needs (according to the Weston Price Foundation)  a family could grow for them selves in an urban situation. We have finalised the design as below, and we have written a Koanga Booklet describing the design in far more detail, with lots of charts and diagrams and notes for you all to see, and we will now keep records of inputs and outputs over time to see just how it pans out. You can read about the money saved by growing food in this garden on our Urban Garden Blog.
