Keyhole Gardens

key hole garden

This is what is commonly referred to as a keyhole garden, an old world small-scale farming system invented in Africa. Build a circular structure to support the garden and bring it up to waist height to keep yourself comfortable and create easy accessibility. Place a reasonably wide wire tube for compost and a semi sealed “keyhole” entry to allow you to slide in for tending. The compost pile is where you concentrate the watering, which helps break down the organic goodies and disperse them throughout the garden for the plants. Fill in the bottom with wood and other materials at the bottom, pile on some nice soil on top and you’re all set to go!
