Sheet Mulch/Hugelkultur

This is a hands-on event building sheet mulch and hugelkultur. These are No Till gardening systems. Traditional gardening systems, even organic, deplete soil nutrients. Nature builds nutrients into the system over time by maintaining a habitat for a complete soil ecosystem that holds nutrients through the growth, decay and regrowth cycles. When you till the soil you destroy that habitat, burn your organic matter faster than the plants can use the nutrients and release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. These No Till gardening systems recreate the habitat for soil organisms, build soil fertility over time, reduce the work load on the gardener, sequester carbon in the soil, and produce prolifically. Why would you garden any other way? Price: $25.00* *free for member of a gardening team http://www.organiclan... See the event calendar: http://www.organiclan... The saying goes that there is no bad weather . . . only insufficient clothing. However, in the case of inclement weather we may limit the hands-on portion for safety and comfort. If an event is canceled, please consider attending on a different date . . . or consider asking David Braden to work with your team at your garden (schedule permitting).

    This is an all day event and we will take about an hour break around noon. Either bring a water bottle and a sack lunch, or there are meal options close by. Sid will provide some snacks and such. We had a great time March 6 and the weather looks like it will cooperate again . . . think sun screen.
