We utilised a technique of harvesting that rain water and directing it through a system of passive irrigation pathways, with some decompaction using a broadfork we then brought in some soil, compost and over 15 cubic yards of woodchips which is approximately 15 tons of Co2 Equivalent in carbon captured by this garden
