My friend is a Native Bee researcher at the University of Minnesota.  I told her about Hugelkultur, she put one in her yard in St. Paul, and for the first time in 20 years, has BEES nesting in her yard in the Hugelkultur!  This is what I consider to bee  another major benefit of hugelkulturs.  I thought I would share and encourage everyone to spread the word that hugelkulturs are also helping to save endangered species that are critical to our survival (pollinators).   Thank you!  Keep on a-growin' and being the answer to most of the questions.
