About the Event
Join farmer florist Sarah Wagstaff as she teaches about how & why of using the sustainable method of gardening called Hugelkultur. Sign up for 1 or both of these hands-on weekend workshops where we will get our hands dirty actually building a regenerative hugelkultur row at SUOT Farm and Flowers newest acreage.
Part 1 (June 17) will be a quick intro into hugelkultur & volunteer safety followed by peeling back the occulation plastic, measuring out the bed length & widths, piling up woody debris (starting with the biggest on bottom), & resecuring the occultation plastic for the next area.
Part 2 (June 24) will be a quick intro/recap of hugelkultur & volunteer safety followed by checking on our hugelkultur settling/decomposition from part 1, add brown layers (smaller branches/sticks) to the bed.
Address will be emailed to you in advance of the workshop. This is a private residence. Please do not show up outside of these times. Please respect the private property & buildings, as well as park in designated areas.
Attire: participants must wear closed toed shoes & clothing that covers their legs. Work gloves are highly recommended (we will have some size M to share). Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen are encouraged. This is a rural farm so work clothing is recommended. May be muddy or rainy; dress according to the weather & bring a water bottle. Please leave your pets at home.
