Welcome to the Multi-faceted World of Diamond Gardening

Diamond Gardening for inner growth! Cultivate your place in the world. More than just growing vegetables or cut flowers in a 12' x 12' plot, plant a garden and renew your freedom. This freedom results from the personal success and satisfaction of self-sufficiency while building community with others. With the rewards of an abundant harvest, you widen your awareness of the subtle workings of nature. When you create a Diamond Garden you become part of an international chain of diamond friends who are linked together through the desire to make this act of gardening a spiritual and freedom filled endeavour.

Diamond Gardening increases awareness and respect for your health and spirituality using your 12' x 12' garden as a microcosm of your place in the world.

Ore about peas

  While planting my snow peas I began wondering about where peas were first cultivated—anybody know? The pea has been around since prehistoric times.  Probably native to central Europe or Asia they may have been brought from Greece or Italy by the Aryans 2,000 before Christ’s time.

Remember how Inés built the frame of her 1×1 m square Diamond Garden box? Apart from the practical feature that she put her garden on wheels to be able to move it around in her patio, she had two further issues she wanted to address: providing a drainage system to avoid “flooding” her plants and […]

A Diamond On Wheels

The terrace of Inés Kohlmeyer`s flat in south-west Germany is ideally situated for gardening: direct access to water from the flat, nice and sunny, but also protected from too much direct sun and cold winds.

Interview with Sue Gurnee, Diamond Gardening Initiator

1. When did you create your first Diamond Garden? In the early 1970’s I did a great deal of research and experimentation with growing vegetables the Chinese way using raised beds and planting so that no space was wasted. The beds looked like raised diamonds filled with glittering sunbathed crops. In the early 1980’s I […]

A City Diamond

A garden? – A Diamond Garden? – At our place? – When those questions arose, I found many reasons to give up on the idea. The most obvious one: How should we have a garden, living as we do, right in the middle of a big city in Germany, in a rented apartment on the […]
