Hugelkultur

A couple weeks ago a group of students on a food justice project, came and helped us build a hugelkultur bed. In German, hugelkultur literally translates into “mound culture”. The process is a sort of carbon sequestration, as you build a raised garden bed filled with decomposing wood.

The result? Deep soil filled with air pockets and pleny of nutrients and life for your plants’ roots to thrive.

Soon there will be squash growing from the seeds we planted yesterday.
