As a follow on from Niall’s post, here is a simple guide to building your own permaculture vegetable garden. It is supereasy and rewarding – here is an update on the food garden 2.0 just 11 days after Niall’s pic:
Anyhoo, now to the steps…
STEP 1: Brick Layout
Lay out an area for your bed using some bricks.
STEP 2: Paper Layer
Put down a layer of old cardboard and/or paper and moisten it.
STEP 3: Dead Matter Layer
Create a layer of dead matter. We used leaves collected from the garden.
STEP 4: Green Matter Layer
Put down a layer of green matter. We used leaves from unwanted trees in the garden.
STEP 5: Activator
Create a layer using an activator. We used kraal manure. Wet this layer.
STEP 6: Top Soil
Put down a layer of top soil and plant some seeds / seedlings.
