Urban Permaculture by intercostal waters

Posted by Nimia Ramos Beauchamp over 3 years ago

Work in progress!
Have a small plot of land 25' x12' a residential apartment complex allowed me to develop a permaculture garden. Surrounded by cement, tar,many cars as it is the end of the building parking lot, right next to the un forging relentless wind and salt from the intercostal water ways, and mixed soil of sand and clay and building fillers this has been an interesting and overall challenging project. Plants are definetly living entities that want to grow and will work hard to grow. So placement of certain bushes (big trees not allowed), small trees for wind buffering, catering to the native varieties, trying to get a plant or two in to help the monarchs on their way south and all that sun and heat from the tar has not dissuaded me but encouraged me to be imaginative with my design. I finally have some yuca growing, cranberry hibiscus is working hard at staying alive, the papayas are growing, tubers are starting to take off, the aloe are just doing wonderfully and a Pitaya just grew about half an inch. Surprisingly my Moringa did not even germinate and my pigeon peas are also struggling. My mung beans however are growing well, go figure! The Cuban oregano is hearty and my plantain leaf was eaten up by snails. The kalalu is struggling... But best of all my banana tree which I though would not make it (I planted three) it was the sole survivor is actually looking much better. The shampoo ginger is starting to bloosom! Nice! I'm hoping ithe garden will look good after a few months and maybe inspire some other residential building owners and managers to start developing their own little permaculture garden oasis on their grassy plots!
