I was going through our local library and came across the topic of Hugelkultur which I believe now translates to permaculture. Since you are a .org, I thought it might be worthwhile to join and share ideas. The permaculture concept is extremely interesting considering there are lots of logs on the land and I don't really know what to do with them other than invite some friends over and do a bonfire. After a while, it seems like a waste of resources to just burn them. In any case, the most perplexing thing to me is how does one bury the logs with soil without digging or using excavators? For one, I do not own a trailer to be able to haul an excavator over. Secondly, it is quite costly to rent an excavator. Looking for a good conversation on soil for mound building. Digging or no digging, I believe displaced soil won't be enough to create a mound. So, what does permaculture think soil is and where to get it? Looking forward to your encouragement in creating a successful start with permaculture even if it is a small start. Hopefully, I can learn a lot, successfully experiment and spread the wisdom of permaculture.
