This is a great post about Permaculture design; well worth the read.
I have been doing more reading about Hugelkultur and I am getting quite excited by the possibilities.
The Half assed hugelkultur bed
got me excited with its reference to raised soil temperature.
I work as a garden coordinator in a primary school and I can see some experiments coming up in term three.
Now all I need is some kid friendly links to show the kids where, how and why.
