The Plummery is a suburban home where a tiny urban permaculture garden measuring only 100sq/m (1076 sq feet) produces over 400kg/900 pounds of food year-round. Kat Lavers describes her approach to gardening, including vertical and biointensive growing, and how important it is – and possible! – for city dwellers to be food resilient in the face of natural, financial and social crises. We were very inspired by how little day-to-day effort goes into creating such an abundance of food!

  1. Wonderful! Thank you for posting this, please, more of the same!
    Such inspiration and such a kind lady explaining her work, showing how, with motivation and love for soil, seed and growth of leafy greens and colorful fruit, we can sustain ourselves and others around us. I’ve grown vegetables in allotments and often volunteered in market gardens and on farms, learning lots of skills, selling on farmer’s markets as well. I was the first organic caterer in The Netherlands, in 1991.

    In the last years, living in the South West of Britain, I’ve worked in a market garden with pigs and hens.They prepared the fields, eating all the weeds and ploughing the soil, providing muck as well. That kind of work is what I hope to establish again, when I’ve moved to the West Coast of Ireland, next year.

    It’s where herds of goats roam free since many Irish people left the island when the potato harvest was damaged, and a time of starvation began. These Irish goats will meet up with this Capricorn from The Netherlands, ha! It’s a magnificent sight to see a white goat high above with mighty horns, looking down from a towering rock, the Burren. Oh, the Atlantic Ocean, true blue, the coastal variety of that island! It’s where my heart sings.
