The garden is beautifully laid out, amidst truly stunning scenery, and is full of all sorts of interesting fruits, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. From the Babylonstoren website “The garden is divided into fifteen clusters spanning vegetable areas, berries, bees, indigenous plants, ducks and chickens and includes a prickly pear maze.  Gravity feeds water into waterways from stream into the garden as it was done for 300 years.”
