Hugelkultur (from the German, hill culture) is a method of building a garden bed. It hails from the permaculture world and means building a bed either by piling up wood and branches on the surface of the soil or digging a hole (or trench) and laying the wood in the hole. Next soil is piled on top to bury the wood. See article here on how to build a hugelkultur bed
But why would anyone do such a thing? There are 3 reasons – (1) To obtain a nearly no-need-to-water bed, (2) To improve soil tilth and nutrients, and (3) To have an excuse to say “hugelkultur” and be the coolest neighbor on your block. lol
There’s a huge role the old wood plays in this whole process and why it’s a great way to grow plants, especially when it comes to growing your survival garden.
