Inspirational Projects - Jardin de Zoe

Zoe lives in Avranches, not far from here and has a permaculture garden with edible flowers, salads, fruit and vegetables as well as chickens, pigs and a pony.  I first met her around 6 years ago when I did some weeks of woofing at her place.

I recently did a day's gardening at her place in exchange for some of her more interesting plants and cuttings - daylilies (edible flowers), some fruit bushes, a fig tree, oca bulbs ....

Some images of Zoe's garden:
