I'm new to this site and as we speak I'm in my high school multicultural lit class bored out of my mind. But luckily i have my phone and i can look up cool stuff.

I don't know if I'm posting this in the right section but i would like to know somebody's thoughts. My parents recently purchased a lake property with a septic tank to drainage field system. i would like to know if it were possible to create a large hugukulture mound with the drainage field inside of it or under it. i think this might combat the carbon to nitrogen ratio and promote the break down of the wood and organic matter. i would love to know your thoughts and any downsides you can think of.

Im going to live on this property during college my mom is super into gardening and my dad really likes the end of the world survival venue so im pretty sure i could talk them into it.
permaculture is largely about replacing oil with people. And one tiny ad:
