Making A Keyhole Garden In Africa

Keyhole Gardens are a type of garden bed that allows food to be grown into the dry season (in African countries) and in dry climates. The plants/beds are fed/watered through a central basket which contains compost, manure, woodash, kitchen scaps etc and grey water. They survive floods as they are raised off the ground and work good in very hot weather as they retain moisture well.

If you like you can donate a “Keyhole Garden” which will basically help train more people in how to make them over in Africa: http://www.sendacowgifts.org.uk/build-a-keyhole-garden

The idea behind starting the blog is for me to research sustainable living practices, I enjoy growing plants so their will be an emphasis on organic food production.
