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 an 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 an 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.
