Transformation of an urban vacant plot

Well, I have completed the Permaculture Design Certificate Course and am on to my research and project work. While I scout for the ‘perfect’ plot, I have taken up working on the vacant plot next to my residence which has the potential to become a good community garden. Below is a photo of showing the dismal state of the plot with building rubble, plastic waste, stones and two neem trees!


However, by now my Permaculture garden designer mind is trained to value stones, waste and existing vegetation as much as an efficient patch quilt maker loves left over patches! So I downloaded a small load of locally available cocopeat, about equal quantity of vermicompost. Clearing out the plastic rubbish and moving the stones around to form an edge I planned beds planned along the right wall. Hear after much thought and paper drafting, I laid down the sheet mulch to kick start production.  Here are some photos of the work in progress.
