Last week, I had the unique pleasure of visiting Narayan’s permaculture farm on the Big Island of Hawaii — located in one of the wettest spots in the world.
Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system.
The keyhole shape simply maximizes the grow space on all sides of the mound.
Watch how to make this jungle-style keyhole raised bed.
