What is Hugelkultur? Ancient gardening culture making a big comeback in Powell River these days. Yesterday, Ron led a hugelkultur workshop at Sycamore Commons, so expect to see even more of these beds popping up in your neighbourhood.
Hugelkultur is a raised bed system that uses a lot of wood at it’s core, surrounded by a lot more organic matter. It provides fertility and great moisture retention for many years. It also creates a home for an amazing amount of microbial life, supporting the health of all of your plants.
We cover the logs with wood chips and hay.
Coffee grounds to keep the garden buzzing.
And finally soil.
Enjoyed by all creatures great and smallishly great.
