Description

Easter 2010 (april 4) Billy, Riley and myself built the herb spiral in the so-on rooftop garden. Most of the plants (all plants are provided at ecoflora) are medicinal, a lot of them are edible and medicinal. All the often used kitchen herbs get a spot in the spiral, as well as more special ones.

Goal

Create a favourable spot for the herbs by working with a spiral. There are lower parts (oriented towards north/east) that get more shadow, and upper parts that get full sunshine.
Easy access by the form of a spiral, plants are accessible for picking from all sides, one does not have to step unto the plantbeds.
