This diverse garden oasis, or a regular city lot, is nestled into the landscape with a timber framed pergola, terraced edible plant guilds, a constructed natural stream, two ponds, a stone patio, and a small four-season greenhouse. Part of the energy systems includes solar photovoltaic panels on the garden pergola that let light shine through. In the ponds and greenhouse, food is grown using 'aquaponics'. All are part of an integrative and sustainable design system known as permaculture. Each element performs many functions. Each important function is supported by many elements.
NOTE: This garden was a site on the 2012 Open Days Garden Tour and is not open to the public at other times.
