Mini Urban Food Jungle

This project was London-based lawyer Arani Chakrabarty‘s. He wanted to explore growing food in his shared garden. In less than 5 months we were able to transform the least-looked after bottom of the garden into a veritable food jungle!

In this design we focused on compost and mulch, creating shelter and collecting rainwater (since the garden has no access to water). As Arani was trying growing for the first time, we went for some low-tech planters, easy-to-grow plants that wouldn’t be ravished by slugs, and that could be delivered as plugs. We focused on empowering him with knowledge of Permaculture gardening, and then left it up to Arani’s green fingers, lots of sunshine and rain!
