Keyhole Garden – How to build a Keyhole Garden / Raised Bed Vegetable Patch

Video of how I built my cheap, almost free, keyhole garden (raised bed).

The idea of a keyhole garden is that you feed kitchen and garden waste into the central area, this turns to compost. During decomposition it gets warm, which can help keep your crops warmer during cold days and nights. When you water the compost area, the minerals are dispersed into the surrounding soil which feeds your plants, In theory this increased your foods nutritional value and improves the taste.

Making your own compost can help reduce wastage and help save on landfill.

My Keyhole garden was very cheap to build. The bricks were salvaged free from a local rubbish dump that also handles rubble. Most of the compost I already had from my own compost bins. The surrounding stones were also salvaged from the local tip.
