Salutations All,

My friend Dar helped me put on a hugelkulture project for the kid's garden at our local community center in Crescent City, CA. Dar was instrumental in getting the participants and space, and I helped a bit with design and teaching the what/how/why of hugelkulture. We had many donors of materials and labor, with volunteers of all ages (2-55+). Seeds and starts were also brought by many. Dar had the idea for the window to see the action inside. Hopefully this project will get kids of all ages excited about gardening and help get the word out about hugelkulture and turn some of this region's immense amounts of woody debris into soil instead of smoke. It was a great time, and the bed looks great last I checked, two weeks after install/planting. We already have potato sprouts and a dozen other types of seedlings. I highly recommend trying a project like this for yourself and with your community. It actually led me to a food forest installation team leader job at our local community college, so there's even a selfish reason to do it! All the best.

And then the flying monkeys attacked. My only defense was this tiny ad:
