Hi Folks,

I'm giving a brief talk about HK beds, hugel-swales, etc... to my local organic gardening group tomorrow night (sorry for the lack of notice!). Has anyone here prepared a little talk, slideshow or PowerPoint that you'd like to share? I plan to point them all here for further research, and I have enough photos and general understanding to cover the basics, but I'm not a PowerPoint whiz by any means, so I might just show photos and talk about them, and maybe make a small-scale model bed with sticks, twigs, leaves and a box of "dirt", so we can have some fun and get our hands dirty in the middle of a snowstorm.

If there's a basic presentation I might use as a framework, that might help a lot.

Thanks everyone -- I've learned a lot here!

Clear skies,

You have read this thread correct?


Tons of info and pictures there.

Also a link to Pauls other stuff. I believe that Paul has said that we can use some of his stuff if we give proper credit and links to him, but you might want to ask him for sure.
permaculture is largely about replacing oil with people. And one tiny ad:
