Anyone interested in coming to my farm to build a new hugelbeet and talk Soil Science?
I'm in lovely southern Rhode Island, a short bike ride from the beach.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. Dates are flexible, we have some local help but would also love folks from other places. No experience required. We have some beets you can observe already.
I've been building a couple of them and have a couple of spots planned. I am waiting on a delivery of some materials, but soon! I have a few people who want to help, and more expressing interest all the time, plus I may have wwoofers. Is a weekday or a weekend better for you? We have at least two projects planned for the near future but I haven't nailed anything down yet.
Tools: A wheelbarrow is a big help, we have only one good one. A manure fork is helpful, one of ours has a broken handle. We have a bunch of shovels. A scoop of soil from the woods...
Cardboard without the shiny stuff on it is always welcome. The most valuable resource that we have is our own human ideas and enthusiasm.
