Our groundbreaking event resulted in the amazing construction of a recycled palate bench,
and making our first Huglekultur bed. Hugulkultur is a permaculture technique where the use of logs (which we pulled from the back of the lot) as a base layer for the bed acts as a sponge, retaining moisture as it turns into dirt. These logs are "pre-dirt" and will add organic matter and beneficial micro-organisms, fungi and bacteria, to the soil as they decompose.

Man those kids really worked. Moving new soil into place to make our lovely planting ground.
