This is cool thanks for all the great information. I do have this question.
If the foxtail locks up salt in it's cells and you leave it as mulch when it breaks down the salts won't go back into the soil?

Hey thanks Kelly

I had thought of some of those things but you gave me a few more things to think about. Do you or anybody know if it's nutrient accumulator or a nitrogen fixer?
Now if I could make some sense out of foxtail that would be great. Is it like a pioneer plant? Will it choke it's self out? What can I plant to choke it out?
I'm not wanting to plow or till I don't have much organic matter in the soil as it is.

Happy Hump Day Permie people!!!
I've been shearching for info on what benefits kosha has on the soil. I haven't found anything except on using it for feed and how to kill it.
If there's any place I can find this info it's here. And I also have a fantastic crop of foxtail and I'm having a really hard time rapping my head around it's benefits. Can somebody please help me? Also in my searching I found a thread on gout weed which is really cool.
Would anyone know where I can get seed??

Hi Miles
We are already planning for the next conference as I said it's going to be a joint conference with the master gardeners. I think we got the seed planted in a lot of their heads I think it's really going to grow. I don't really know about the buss around the state. But I know there's a whole lot of people learning about it up here in Cody. Expecially about hugelkuluturs.
We have started a new project that I have been thinking about for the last 3 - 4 years. We have been getting quite the attention. I need to post the project on permies but haven't had time to sit down at the computer. It's a youth garden that is owned by the children of Park County. Don't know if you are on facebook ( i'm not a facebooker ) but we do have a faceook page. It's younghugelers it explans the hole project as of now. It seems to keep growing. Also we just had a Great article in the Cody Enterprise. It came out in Thursday the 14ths paper think can still see it online. We plan on using Matt Powers books to help teach the kids and the adults. My biggest thing is I need to go through a design course myself. I'll get sat down at this thing and get it posted soon.

EVERYBODY HAVE A GREAT MONDAY!!!

Hey Everybody
Sorry I haven't got back sooner. It Rained WooHooo !!! It forced me inside. The conference was Great... Thank you Tate and Christian. It was awesome to introduce permaculture at the conference. Tate and Christian did a wounderful job, they eased them into it so it didn't freak them out. Change is hard for people that have things a certian way for so long.
Next year we are having a joint conference with the Master Gardeners I'm going to work very hard to make sure we have more tracts with topics on permaculture.

Thanks again to Christian and Tate for the Awesome job, and Thanks to Miles for helping get hooked up with these guys....
