Open Door Health and Wellness Gardens is excited to present a free Hügelkultur Workshop. The workshop will take place at the Arcata Community Wellness Garden at F and 11th Streets on Saturday, March 7th from 1pm- 3pm. Learn from Marlon Gil of Rainshine Permaculture and build a hügel bed in your community garden! Hügelkultur is a permaculture technique of mounding woody debris, compost, and other biomass to build a raised garden bed. This method of gardening increases nutrients, soil aeration, water retention, heat retention and sequesters carbon.
