  •  This orchard is divided into small rectangles. Each space has a vegetable, flower, or herb.
  • In the construction of the structure, iron or PVC pipes and cables are used.
  • The taller plants are in the back rows and closer to sunlight.
  • Vertical plants such as tomatoes are hung from suspended pipes to optimize space.
