Keyhole Gardens and how to make one

Keyhole Gardens and how to make one

Keyhole Garden

Keyhole Gardens are a great addition to any school grounds and will really help your pupils to learn about 'good news' projects in Africa. The design - which looks like a keyhole from above - incorporates a central ‘basket’ where compostable waste is placed and 'grey' water is poured. They get brilliant results and are a fantastic whole school sustainability project. Hundreds of schools have used the gardens to talk about compost, recycling, food and life in African countries. Why not give it a go? Contact us if you would like to book an African Garden Day to build a Keyhole Garden Day at your school.

Bag gardens

Bag Gardens are a type of African garden that Send a Cow teaches families how to make in Africa. They are also a great way to get your pupils involved in a growing project, learning about healthy eating and life in an African country. These mini-gardens make the most of soil, compost and waste water, are easy to weed and can be grown in schools.
