Walls of earthbags
Never ones to shy away from a new idea, the South Melbourne Commons crew have begun building unique, earth bag retaining walls for some of the site's food gardens. Here's proof that you can use the dirt from beneath your feet to create simple but beautiful structures in a manner that's easy to learn, seriously environmentally friendly and dirt cheap.
