Design theory becomes design practice.

It’s not all about digging!

Part of the permaculture process is to design a garden that fits the space, the conditions, the needs of the growers and works in harmony with the environment.

The Hawick Community Growing Team, led by Rachel, have settled upon a mandala style layout, with paths and a sitting area.  Today the ground was being marked with chalk spray so that the planting area and paths could be layed out.

And at the other end of the garden, the team work to clear and chip the brash that has accumultaed during the garden clearing. The wood chip is an excellent mulch and goes straight onto the garden. No dig…no waste! Perfect permaculture!
