Garden + Food Sovereignty (August 12′ to Present)

Standard

One of the biggest aspirations at roots has been local food cultivation and consumption and establishing connections with our local ecosystem. Its been an ongoing effort to get our terrace and kitchen habitats to thrive and working in alignment with permaculture principles. One day we hope to serve as a demonstration site and resource hubs for people with similar intentions within the neighborhood and beyond. Here are displays of the progress we have made so far. The pics are not arranged in chronological order.

Theres Plans for a rock climbing wall where one harvests veggies as they climb. Hope we can make full utilization of the south facing exposure and vertical space.

The branches form the felled cocunut trees were temporarily deposited on the sheds and later used as mulch for the hugelkutur (images coming soon) bed that we made..
