Let's make a Hugelkultur at Lacy's house!

You may have heard of this amazing permaculture technique for creating a raised bed without using dimensional lumber. By taking a mound (or berm) of rotting wood and sticks and adding manure, leaves, straw, compost, topsoil or any other organic material you have, you can create a growing bed that will be self-watering, self-fertilizing, self-heating, and give you more square footage for planting in than when you started with flat ground! For those of you who have limited in-city garden space this technique can really come in handy to increase your food production areas. Please come dressed to work in the weather: bring work gloves, a shovel if you have one, and let's get dirty together!

Please read the address carefully: it's S. 172nd PLACE, not Street. Also be aware that there is a major detour around Military Road at this time. Google maps will get you there correctly at this time.

    EVENT RESCHEDULE: Due to heavy rain, this event will be rescheduled to next Thursday, 4/24. We risk soil compaction if we work in dirt this wet, so let's plan for next week and less rain!
    Nancy, will you be able to join us with more lead time?

    Thanks for the feedback. We'll keep that in mind. If you can make it for a spur-of-the-moment event, we'll be happy to see you.

    Sounds like a fun activity. However, more notice (1 week or more) would be helpful. Thank you!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
