It's not the largest structure ever seen, probably 2.5m long, 1m wide and 75cm tall but my 9 year old daughter wanted to help and I thought it best to complete a project together rather than only get part way through a larger bed.
I hope it's right, this is what I've done:
removed the turf
dug about 30 cm deep
put down very rotten wood in decent size chunks
put down thinner branches
added upturned turf
added a load of rotted horse manure
topped off with the soil I had dug out of the hole originally, and a bit more
I'm hoping this is right - we are going to extend it so please let me know if it's wrong!
This counts as my first ever permaculture project!
Excellent job Dave and including the kids so much better !! , i get my kids to help plant seeds , raise them and harvest them (5 and 2 yo's) they get great fulfillment from it and takes the burden out of making them eat their vegies *big thumbs up*
I think he's gonna try to grab my monkey. Do we have a monkey outfit for this tiny ad?
