So I've had an idea for a cheap and easy bumper sticker that could easily be bumped up to shirts and the like that promotes permies.com and specifically hugelkultur:

DO YOU HUGEL?
www.Permies.com

The cynic in my thinks that the word Hugelkultur is simply too long and foreign to keep people's goldfish-like attention, but the word Hugel is simple and kind of catchy. Nothing more than two syllables, quick enough for us to process even at a casual glance. Plus, you can get simple bumperstickers like this made online for around $3 each if you order 100 or more.

The same slogan would fit fine on hats and shirts, and with the shirts you could put the great graphic images of the hugelbeds that Paul has on the hugelkultur page on the front or back.

Of course, there'd need to be a link to the hugelkultur page close to the top of the Permies main page for that to work the best, otherwise people might get overwhelmed and give up...

I think this is a really good idea, but with one showstopper: when I google "hugel" I get a bunch of stuff that has nothing to do with hugelkultur.

Hmmm, good point. Maybe instead of just www.permies.com it could say www.richsoil.com/hugelkultur?

I wouldn't be surprised if the permies site started showing up for a search if there were a number of links to the site that involved the specific word hugel. As it is "hugel culture bed" and "hugel mound" both show up in the related searches...
 
It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
