I just read an article in Mother Earth News about "Top Gardening Challenges" in their April / May 2014 issue.

In their section on dealing with drought, they didn't mention hugelkultur at all. So I wrote to the editor with hopes of getting it the contributions section of the magazine. I sent a link to Paul's article, and mentioned permies.com.

And I just got an email back saying they are forwarding my comment to the editor. So let's hope this helps spread the word a bit!!

Good job Julia, I have noticed two articles over the last two months here in Denver. Seems like the word is spreading!

A follow-up: It got included in the latest Mother Earth News issue. I think it's pretty cool.

Hoping the contributes in some way to Paul's plan for world domination.
