An herb spiral. This is one of the trademark strategies of permaculture. The spiral’s tiers shelter the shade-loving herbs one side, and the sun-loving herbs are kissed by the sun on the other side. Meanwhile all the herbs are companions to each other, facilitating the growth and soil health of the group.
Spirals are also symbolic of our connection to the earth. Through them, energy passes between us and the earth. The earth, listening to us. Us, listening to the earth.
This is beautiful. I’d love to have the garden space to do something similar.
