Paul, I first heard of Hugelkultur last night through a blog I read every few days. It linked to a thread where others were discussing their success, tips and ideas on hugelkultur. I spent 2 hours reading and skimming through 17 pages and made up my mind to try it in my own small garden, on a much smaller scale. I only grow herbs and veg, I do not have much room and want to try to do more with the space I have. I love the name, it's intriguing and old world and speaks to me of my European farming ancestors. I came back this afternoon and read more and signed up to join this forum because of the wealth of people and information and ideas - and the general good attitude of folks in here. I will be sharing this with sustainability, urban homesteading, organic gardening bloggers I check in with both on their sites and on Facebook. I will share this will all my gardening friends, my local AG Extension office and local conservation organizations - there's one in my town. Our state just held our Farm Show week in the capital and I wish I had known about this yesterday when I was there, I could have brought it up with the farmers. The folks at The Farm in Tennessee must know about this already and Plenty should also know. I have some emails to write.
If one person could be turned in less than 24 to try it and share the information, then you will get your 50 million...it only take a while.
Ah, and I agree with you about the effing lightbulbs and the greenwashing of Joe and Jane Public.
