Our goal is to establish a permaculture garden and is 10 years project started in 2014 with guidance from Change the World. We made a plan to make this an open garden people can visit with information about growing your own food.
This garden is called Spiralen. It's about starting small and achieve big things - to start with yourself and contribute to a sustainable development.
But what is a permaculture garden?
Permaculture as a system is nothing new. Permaculture organizes existing resources in a way that saves energy or produces more energy than used.
Spiralen will have 3 vegetable gardens that each will have different animals that will work the soil and remove weeds and left over vegetables. We have to vegetable gardens now and one have chickens and the other have cute rabbits. We also cultivate a star bed that provides a great environment for growth which is an important principle in ecological cultivation.
In the middle of Spiralen is our large maze which is decorated by graffiti artist Are Burås.
We have our own bonfire and it's a meeting point for parties and activities with the world most decorated roost build with pallets and outlooks the basil garden.
Chicken and gardens is a good match. They process the soil in a gentle and efficient way and give us healthy eggs in return.
Our eatable "jungle" is well underway and the fruit forrest will provide different fruits.
We also have beehives and in the future we will also have goats, water feature and a large greenhouse.
Spiralen Besøkshage is now open for visitors on thursday's 12-19 and sunday's 12-17 out september
