Community Garden, Tonca/Goa


A housing complex that wanted to use compost from its collective waste management process productively by growing food in a section of its property. The local municipality supported this by providing some of the materials we needed.


The space was adjacent to the water storage tank and a lot of the soil consisted of dumped waste materials and construction rubble. This meant that considerable soil improvement was needed. Since there was no dedicated gardener available, it needed to be a low-maintenance garden too.


The garden was set up in two days, and was quickly productive. The wood-chip mulch that we used here made sure that paths and beds were protected from sun, and decomposed slowly to further enhance the soil.
