Hügelkultur in S-W Turkey  RSS feed

Hello everyone,

We have just moved to Turkey and will try to get 5 acres of land this winter. If we do, I would love to implement Hügelkultur on part of this land.

Here in rural Turkey, wood is the primary fuel for heating in winter (people have left their grandparents small stone naturally insulated houses to build big concrete square uninsulated monstrosities instead).

The only wood I might be able to get a hold of is freshly cut mulberry (they pop up anywhere and grow very fast).

How should I proceed to get a good Hügel going with this wood ?

Thanks for your help !

It seems that mulberry like willow, with enough moisture available, sprouts out quite easily. You could leave the wood an branches stacked up through summer to make sure it is dead before building the bed..
I AM MIGHTY! Especially when I hold this tiny ad:
