We have formed a non-profit organization in a small rural northern California town and are organizing a big push for springtime to complete the first acre of our WILDERNESS GARDEN MAZE, a large garden constructed of hugelkulture beds! This will be a public space where people can come, harvest food and connect with the natural world.

You can read all about this project on our website: http://madesivalleyclt.org/wilderness-garden-maze/

We have a couple of beds already, which did phenomenally last season and this spring we are organizing an effort to complete the entire first acre and get it open to the public! If anyone is interested in volunteering for this push starting in March and going probably through April and possibly into May, we will be putting volunteers up in a nice house and feeding them well, and the whole team will be working hard to get this incredible project off the ground.

Tasks will include working with equipment (we will have a 20 ton excavator with TILTROTATOR, a dump truck and skidsteer for collecting wood for the hugels, a backhoe with auger bit for drilling fence post holes, and a pick-up truck for collecting flat stones for pathways), plumbing, shovel work, mulching, planting and more!

If interested, please contact me.
