Hugelkultur is a proven German method of gardening that employs excess garden debris as fertilizer for future plants.  They are often called no-dig raised beds with a difference: they hold moisture, build fertility, maximize surface volume, and are great spaces for growing fruit, vegetables, herbs, and ornamental plants.

Learn the basic concept of hügelkultur by Sarah Wagstaff, owner of SUOT Farm and Flowers, and view photographs of beds in progress and other examples of a fully landscaped yard. Class includes a seed packet to start your own hugelkultur garden at home.
