To help create Flora and Kem Ajachel’s dream, JUSTA collaborated with NuMundo to build this backyard garden. Together, we built a space following local permaculture principles and featuring a variety of local medicinal herbs and plants that create natural plant dyes! The space is also economically self-sustaining with public tours and natural dyeing workshops that subsidize local artisans to experience the same educational opportunities!
The garden features:
- a complete rainwater catchment system with soaker hoses for watering the entire garden
- a banana plant circle to provide nitrogen and water to the soil as well as surround our compost area
- two custom built rocket stoves made of adobe and natural materials
- repurposed bamboo for fencing around garden beds
- organic natural compost fertilizers and soils
- natural dye plants
- medicinal herbs
- local super foods such as chaya greens, chia seed, and amaranth
