An African keyhole garden is basically a raised bed with a wire cylinder standing upright in the center. Most of these gardens have an opening that lets you walk into the bed and easily add materials to the cylinder. Flowers or veggies are planted in the bed, and as the materials decompose, rain or water from your hose carries nutrients and good organisms from them into the surrounding soil.
