Greetings from Taiwan,

I'd like to make a few huegelbeds but i don't have access to manure.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance-Harry

I bet you've got access to more manure than you think. more commonly referred to as "night soil" in some parts of the world.

but hugelkultur can work just fine without any manure, too.

My hugelbeds worked great without manure or "night soil", used "night water" instead.

"Night water" is good enough as fertilizer, but if you need something to cover up the wood, leaves, pulled up weeds, and whatever else is lying around will work just fine.
