Hugelkultur – raised bed making – Ozora
Raised plant beds bring you a lot of advantages in gardening. We are going to make one with the Hugelkultur technique, showing the people how to utilize most of the organic waste matter that a garden produces. Simply mound whatever non-toxic biomass you have available, top with soil and plant your veggies. The advantages of these beds: Soil aeration increases as the biomass breaks down… meaning the bed will be no till, long term. The wood logs and branches act like a sponge. Rainwater is stored and then released during drier times. To find out more come and join us to see how simple it is to cooperate with nature.
