Inspired by the African keyhole gardening technique, the Urbana Keyhole Composting Garden lets you compost household waste and grow vegetables in the same garden. A central compost basket is used to conveniently place your daily kitchen scraps. This household waste is then organically transformed into nutrient rich soil that nourishes your vegetables. Compost-fed soil better holds moisture and nutrients, while using up to 70% less water.
The Urbana Keyhole Composting Garden is crafted from a never before seen material that offers the natural look of wood, but with the lightweight durability of polymer. Dual aesthetic boards can be reversed to allow for either a natural wood grain look or brushed finish and are BPA/phthalate-free ensuring healthy, safe food production and a long product lifespan. Boards slide into posts easily and conveniently, with no need for tools or screws. The innovative posts make for perfectly modular garden beds, allowing you to design and configure your own unique layout and size. It’s smart, sustainable and beautifully designed.
Vita distributes a portion of their Keyhole profits to build Keyhole Gardens in Rwanda and educate communities in sustainable, healthy food production.
