I wanted to share with you a project I'm working on. It's a 122 acre retreat facility in Northern Ontario that I volunteer with, and they asked me to design for them (I ended up using this project as my design for the Geoff LawtonOnlinePDC design exercise).
We've started to implement a few things, first off being the kitchen garden nearest to the main caretakers house. We did a raised bed mandala design, and plan to do a kind of mini-hugelkultur inside each section. Still undecided as to what should become the walking path. My mind doesn't seem to get past just a simple wood chip floor but I know there could be something more creative to put in there potentially. Thoughts?
Here's me inside the middle of the newly finished mandala (Click for bigger pic)
Right on! That looks pretty darn sweet. Some nice height on those raised beds. Definitely throw some wood in the bottom of those for the hugel effect. Those stones will keep things nice and warm. Keep us posted on the progress.
