Cancelled: Creating Growing Beds–Swales & Hügelkultur [OFFSITE]
June 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am$55.00
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!

* 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.
