Design in Progress

HERB SPIRAL

Interested in herbs? land available for a herb garden. What you gonna do?

At Napier University we had a module at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. Some students carried on this link and were allowed to grow herbs in the nursery. A design for a person shaped herb garden was drawn up and just after the shape was marked out with sand, google earth made their first fly over. People were interested in this new mapping technology but we caused a rumpus with a huge man shape in the nursery.

The second time I have actively had the chance to design a herb garden was at the People's Community Garden in Ipswich. I had a 9m by 9m square in the hub of the garden.
