Thanks for the responses and input. We have no legal recourse as the property is privately owned by a benefactor that has actually been against my hugel mounds, trees, etc, from the start. The city provides liability insurance for the property and assistsee in the water bill. I believe I will focus efforts at the homestead, look for some country property and just pull out of the community effort. I have tried too many years in this city and it is definitely a losing battle. Another town, different open minded permits folks, the story would be one of success not death to our efforts.
The city or whoever will definitely have a task in tearing down the huge hugelkultur mounds. This garden was named the tetrad... one massive 20' circular mound in the center and four flanking mounds at the corners, arched mounds in between. .. to commemorate the four blood moons and solar eclipse. It was an awesome, extremely productive site.
Thanks guys, gals, just knocked down, reinvigorated to the next focus.
