Growing gardens in Central Ontario can be a real challenge. It’s a good bet that the bedrock isn’t far beneath the surface and there’s just not enough soil to work with. But you can still have gardens even if you only have sand and rocks.
There’s a garden bed technique called Hugelkultur. It’s a raised bed using woody waste. A hugel bed is made of logs, branches, brush, leaves, and compost. It’s a perfect way of fast tracking a fertile garden bed, even for places that already have some soil depth. In this workshop, we’ll be teaching you how to build a Hugelkultur garden as well as how to maximize organic household and garden waste to keep your hugel bed productive.
The workshop includes great snacks, drinks, and Red Kuri squash seedlings to take home for your own hugelkultur bed.
