Permaculture / Urban Gardening

“What are you harvesting this week?” is a question that friends, neighbours and family members who know about my garden project, ask me frequently. My answers vary between raspberries, peas, beans, ginger, lemons, lettuce, turmeric, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, rhubarb, herbs, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini and more – the list is long. Observing the variations and climatic conditions in one’s garden can really make a permaculture project quite viable in an urban situation.
“But does it not smell??!!!” This is always, accompanied by a very sceptical face expression, the first question I get when I tell people about my roof-top compost. Straight answer, no – it has absolutely no odour at all. So let’s get that out the way to leave your minds clear for digesting (excuse the pun) the benefits and know-how of urban composting.
Permaculture / Urban Gardening · 12. April 2018
For anybody starting a permaculture project, whether a potted roof garden like mine or even large ploughed orchard, it is time to celebrate when you hear the sound of bees busy pollinating - your micro-ecosystem has begun. Carpenter bees, like their work colleagues Mason bees, are prolific pollinators and a single bee can carry out the work of a 100 ordinary honey bees.
