Free, a Permaculture Keyhole and Hugelkultur Garden Build

The Keyhole Garden is an essential element in the Permaculture garden. It allows the gardener to harvest their bounty without ever stepping foot off their path. This helps eliminate compaction and eases the stress of harvesting. A hugelkultur bed is made from a mound of wood buried underneath the soil. As the wood rots, it releases precious nutrients and helps with the absorption and retention of water. This allows a garden to grow without the use of supplemented water or fertilizer, a gardeners dream come true. In this class you’ll learn the history and key concepts of these elements as well as how to apply them to your own yard. You will also be invited to help in the construction of a Hugelkultur/ Keyhole Garden.

Wear comfortable clothing which are OK to get dirty. Bring gloves, wear sturdy shoes, and bring plenty of water.
We will also invite you back to see the finished garden, and share your experience with others.
Workshop will take place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
We will meet on Via De La Valle, west of Jimmy Durante between Fish Market Restaurant and Pamplemousse Grill by 9:45 AM. We will caravan to the location from there. IF YOU ARE LATE, CALL US AT[masked] TO ARRANGE ESCORT TO THE SITE.

    It is a wonder hands-on experience and I have learned a lot of things I did not know before.

      I'm really looking forward to this workshop but it's looking like it's going to rain so if that's the case I don't think I will attend this time.

      We've been running about 3-4 hours a class depending on how many hands are there to help

    If you have branches or wood sitting around, let me know and we'll see if we can use them in our bed!

    As of today (Tuesday) there is a 40% chance of rain for sunday, we're going plan on holding this class in case of a light drizzle, but cats and dogs we'll reschedule. So bring a rain jacket, some hot coffee, a chair to rest in, a shovel to dig with and a passion to learn!

    Oh, I am so sorry I will not be able to attend as planned. Please let me know about future events about keyhole gardens.

    I think I`m going to give a brief introduction to soils, so bring a folding chair or something comfy to sit on.
