Hugelkultur: less water, more yield

from 30.00

Join Kevin Frazier for a hands-on lesson in Hugelkultur, an old European trench compost/garden bed technique utilized in permaculture. Hugel garden beds have the ability to water themselves and they’re made of ordinary yard debris like spongy rotting wood, leaves, grass clippings, food scraps and compost.

When properly constructed, hugel beds act like a sponge which holds onto moisture for prolonged periods of time — turning ordinary Georgia red clay into black gold over time by producing a matrix for earthworms and other soil dwellers to thrive. Unlike some other methods of composting, hugel beds can be planted right after they’ve been built.

You’ll learn first hand how (get ready to get dirty) to build your own hugel bed, and after you’ve seen the amazing results you can get from your self-watering garden — you’ll never want to go back to expensive irrigation systems or time consuming daily hand watering again. Hugelkultur is a multifaceted tool you’ll learn to use for erosion control, yard debris clean up, building soil fertility and water conservation. So break out your boots and gloves and join us for a garden class you’ll never forget!

About the Instructor:
Kevin Frazier received an Environmental Horticulture degree from North Metro Technical College and has worked in the field for the last 12 years as a nurseryman propagating plants, landscaping with edible, ornamental and useful plants, organic farming, and most recently as a gourmet and medicinal mushroom cultivator.

Kevin is a practitioner of Permaculture, and for the last few years has found a love for soil and water conservation through the use of retention swales, retention basins, Mycofiltration berms, terracing and of course Hugelkultur! He’s built countless hugel beds at schools, homes and farms around Georgia, and it’s his favorite way to put on site natural resources to use.
