This is an important company for anyone in CA, because CA has a lot of regulations restricting the transport of plant materials and even some other garden materials from out of state.

- I wasn't expecting any thing but advertising from the video, and was pleasantly surprised, at first I thought O.K. when I get questions about Hugel-beds,
I'll send them to this video ! Then when I saw the exploded diagram, I said oh ! Yes i can sketch that ! I will certainly send my cali-friends here ! A. L.

It is not a perfect hugel bed, but for people that never heard of them that might be a good gateway into permaculture.

I've bought stuff from PVFS before, and I originally heard about them from Paul in a podcast! I recommend them. They often have better a price on shipping than anywhere else, and I don't have local sources for lots of the stuff they sell.
