A Hugelkultur bed is an incredibly productive garden bed that is designed to act as a windbreak, sound berm and dynamic growing system for your annual and perennial veggies and shrubs.
Why is this an important technique to add to your gardening and design tool belt? Hugelkultur beds are ideal for our Dry-Temperate climate, this type of planting system collects excess moisture from rain and snowmelt throughout the cool season and stores that moisture for use during the dry months when plants need it most. Another great benefit to Hugel beds is their dynamic nature, the beds are always slowly breaking down and generating heat which helps plants grow faster.
Why we think you will love this workshop!
This will be the area’s first Hugelkultur workshop with Element Eco-Design and Javan Bernackevitch. In the last year Javan has spent extensive time studying with Sepp Holzer, including time studying with him in Austria in 2013. Javan is a wealth of knowledge and has a fun upbeat teaching style that is bound to leave you grinning from ear to ear. This one day hands-on workshop will teach you the skills needed to construct a dry land hugelkultur bed that can be used to grow all kinds of crops including trees and berry bushes.
