Humanity has the option to become successful on our planet if we reorient world production away from weaponry-- from killingry to livingry

UTAH URBAN HUGELKULTUR FIRST STEPS

on in PERMACULTURE

b2ap3_thumbnail_hugel-gravel-removal.jpgThe area the hugel mound is going to be in has two raised beds which needed to be broken down and is covered by 6'b2ap3_thumbnail_hugel-begin-digging.jpg' of gravel that needed to be removed before we could start digging.  The wood from the raised beds will be used to line the hugel mound and the soil within them, which has been annually turned with new topsoil and manure will be used as the top soil of the completed hugel mound.  About 5 man hours of clearing gravel and about 20 man hours of digging, the hole is now 25' long, 5' wide and 2' deep. 

 Here is the tree that we will be removing shortly and is what will fill the newly dug trench.

Now that the hole is filled with the larger pieces, we will disassemble the old garden boxes for lining of the hugel mound and after complete, will finish piling the smallest debri from the tree and can begin with the layers of soil, nitrogen, carbon and topsoil.
