Cancelled: Creating Growing Beds–Swales & Hügelkultur [OFFSITE]

June 28, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


This is an All-Star workshop that combines creating successful growing beds while cycling water and wood trimmings! In this workshop you will learn about creating raised beds as swales on contour with an extra focus on hügelkultur. Also covered is how to plant fruitful choices and lots of practical permaculture. We will be shaping swales and exemplifying hügelkultur. Learn which designs best fit your land, how they are created, and how to make them look good!

Michael Judd has worked with agro-ecological and whole system designs throughout the Americas for the last 20 years focusing on applying permaculture and ecological design to increase local food security and community health in both tropical and temperate growing regions. The founder of both Ecologia, LLC, Edible & Ecological Landscape Design and Project Bona Fide, an international non-profit supporting agro-ecology research.

* Workshops will be a combination of theory and hands-on practice. Whether you have a little patch of backyard or a huge property to work with, the principles you learn in this class will help make your land more diverse, productive, and ecologically friendly than ever before.
