Fourth Shap : Exploring Edges
Accessing the Key Whole
The fourth level of our community demonstration permaculture garden site at the Boom festival was the creation of a classic key hole bed.
First we put down a bunch of dirt right next to the temple omniplex entrance to help direct the energy flow and protect
the temple entryway from being filled with onlookers.
We used a bunch of plants here including roses, rosemary, junipers, hostas and Portuguese native plants. You can also
see the palm trees that frame the entrance.
The plants were set into the soil and the surface covered with pine mulch.
Here Jenny Pell displays our beautiful Xavi sign
Here you can see evidence of our two other sign sets. The small white signs label the individual plants, and the
multicolored signs give permaculture information in three languages, portuguese, spanish and english.
Here you can see the sign a little closer up:
In english the sign says:
Permaculture integrates ecology, landscape, organic gardening, architecture and agro-forestry in creating a rich and
sustainable way of living. It uses appropriate technology giving high yields for low energy inputs, achieving a resource of
great diversity and stability. The design principles are equally applicable to both urban and rural dwellers.
- Bill Mollison
Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of cultivated ecosystems which have the diversity, stability and
resilience of natural ecosystems resulting in the harmonious integration of people into the landscape in such a way that
the land grows in richness & aesthetic beauty.
- Scott Pittman and Patricia DuBose Michael
