Inspired by the African keyhole gardening technique, the Urbana 6×6 Keyhole Composting Garden lets you compost household waste and grow vegetables in the same garden.
A central compost basket is used in the Keyhole Garden 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 collection is crafted from a composite material that offers the natural look of wood, but with the lightweight durability of vinyl. 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. Our 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.
Inspired to Give Back
We stumbled upon the Keyhole garden concept while researching organic gardening methods. This inspired us to create our own series of garden beds using this African gardening technique. This idea was gifted to us by the African people and so we felt compelled to give back.
Thrive is a charity determined to end malnutrition in our lifetime. They empower communities with the training and simple tools needed to sustainably grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods for life. Vita partners with Thrive by financially supporting programs in Africa and around the world.
