What is a Keyhole Garden?
John Spacey, updated on July 20, 2016
A keyhole garden is a small circular raise-bed garden with a composting area in the center. A small path is cut in one side of the garden so that people can easily reach the composter, this gives the garden its characteristic keyhole shape. The composter typically accepts vegetable scraps, greywater and manure and automatically spreads nutrients to the garden. Keyhole gardens were originally designed by humanitarian agencies in Africa as highly productive gardens that are easy to use. They are known to be drought resistant and high yield. In recent years, they are popular as home gardens in Europe and North America.
