regeneration part II: mandala garden before & now

Time Lapse: 4 months

This area is made up of seven circular beds, with six around one center circle.  The center circle is planted with herbs: marjoram, parsley, and tarragon.  It also has lots of spinach growing in it which we though was rocket/ arugula when we planted ;)  The other six circles are planted with a mix of veggies and herbs.  There is a border circle planted with fragrant plants (lemongrass, lavender, dill, artemesia, and marigolds) to keep away pests.

This is the section of bush that we have regenerated into more productive land.  Grass had grown over an old trash dump and so there was much clearing and cleaning that happened before we could even start fertilizing the earth.  We used a mix of sheep manure, cow manure, and kraal ("goat pen") manure.

    Are there larger versions of the pictures you could link to? I’d like to see some of the beds a little closer.
    Good work though 🙂
