Organic Food Garden for Retirement Village

Introduction: Organic Food Garden for Retirement Village

I have designed a large (4acre) garden for a retirement village here in South Africa .

It is an incredibly exciting project, including
- fruit trees
- allotments (mini-gardens for private tending by residents)
- wheelchair friendly raised gardens
- commercial food production for village restaurant
- chicken housing for egg and meat production
- large scale compost recycling and production
- safe and flat walkways including attractive bridges
- water features
- seating areas for residents' therapy and recreation

    Thanks Kaptain Kool. The retirement village LOVED the design. Unfortunately the site plan has changed, so we will be creating a smaller version of this on adjacent land.

    This is amazing and includes many features that I would never think of. You should propose this design to the retirement home.
