How to Establish a Small Space Intensive Food Garden Permaculture Research Institute

Case studies like this become an awesome portfolio for yourselves, and help people to see the practical potential in permaculture. It can be totally inspiring, and help get people moving on the ground! Case Study – Noela’s Garden, as installed by Geoff and Nadia Lawton This is a story about a garden that Nadia and I were asked to establish in 2006. It’s a very small space – the area is 95m2. The area on the North side of Noela’s house. Noela, a friend of a friend at the time, is now a very close friend of the institute, due to the community friendship that this garden has created.

Nadia and Geoff establishing the initial fence posts and digging the trench between the posts. Below we’re digging the small trench around the garden between the fence posts: A low height of wire being sunk down into the trench so that it can be buried. Views from the house into the garden. Vertical farming: Does it really stack up? WHEN you run out of land in a crowded city, the solution is obvious: build upwards.

Vertical farming: Does it really stack up?

This simple trick makes it possible to pack huge numbers of homes and offices into a limited space such as Hong Kong, Manhattan or the City of London. Mankind now faces a similar problem on a global scale. The world's population is expected to increase to 9.1 billion by 2050, according to the UN. Feeding all those people will mean increasing food production by 70%, according to the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation, through a combination of higher crop yields and an expansion of the area under cultivation. But the additional land available for cultivation is unevenly distributed, and much of it is suitable for growing only a few crops. Such is the thinking behind vertical farming. Better still, says Dr Despommier, the use of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides can be kept to a bare minimum by growing plants indoors in a controlled environment. The necessary technology already exists. THE SCOPE OF ECONOMICS IN HORTICULTURE.
