Inspirational Permaculture Garden Metamorphosis

PhotobucketPhotobucket Rebecca's garden filled with love for the earth and permaculture is currently undergoing a metamorphosis.

As she waits for surgery to replace two hips she is creating changes to enable her to continue with her gardening passion as she returns to strength.

The multi layered garden pots by her door are a clever innovation for any small space.

The new raised garden bed beside the courtyard is placed under a trellis partition, to enable maximum use of this small space.

Meanwhile with the aid of welcome volunteers the rest of her garden continues to thrive.

It works for the volunteers as well as they leave with generous food supplies from this plentiful garden and new understandings they can apply to their own gardens.

Yacon and sweet potatoes, healthy bug free kale all show the success of Rebecca's healthy soil creation.



Sugar cane, pigeons peas and spinach make for a thriving guild in one section of the garden, while large, juicy passion fruit and chokos on the outside fence make a welcome food source for neighbors who share and love this garden.

It is inspirational to see Rebecca's ongoing sharing of knowledge and food as she waits in considerable pain for her hip surgeries to take place.

That Bloomin' Garden said...

I can totally relate to changing the garden. Had a broken hip and wrist last summer but I am back to kneeling in the garden once again. It's amazing how strong our passion for gardening is and it gives us such strength.
