A Permaculture Designed Wicking Bed System

This web site contains free directions on how to construct and maintain your own BioWicked urban food growing system. This system utilises an improved permaculture designed wicking beds that turns many of the problems with conventional wicking beds into solutions. Rather than emitting methane like some wicking beds the BioWicked beds are sinks for both nitrogen and carbon. As they do not have a gravel or sand layer they also wick more efficiently and can be built deeper for fruit trees and bananas. Permaculture design is based on a combination of functional design and biomimicry, and the BioWicked beds are inspired by nature and natural processes and mimic a rainforest floor over a natural soak.
