The Spiral

One of the defining features of the Miramar Prison Garden is the hand-dug spiral artform that give the Spiral Garden its name. Created by John Overton in 2014, it remains a prominent space within the garden, and marks its transformation from a prison garden into a productive and reflective space enjoyed by the wider community. 

John shared his vision for an urban food forest with Stuff in 2015.
