Would it behoove someone to try translating the hugelkultur article, or at least part of it into other languages?

Maybe the thing to do is to craft an article for the weekly-funky-paper. Then maybe we can all send that to our weekly-funky-papers. ??
Leila Rich wrote:Paul, I keep an eye on gardenweb.com. I wouldn't call it particularly progressive, but there's been more than a few threads started in the last couple of weeks re hugelkultur. Maybe it's coincidental, but the 'word' is definitely out there!

The school may have enough debris from usual landscaping to provide a bit of the supply, and other businesses locally like tree trimmers would be more likely to donate if they can just stick their name on it for a good community cause (education as opposed to someone's backyard). Once you have a model, with happy principal, teachers, students, parents.. other's will want to jump on the bandwagon. As this is happening, it may spread to student's homes as they get excited about it and their parents observe. AND, (this is KEY) have one of your students in the group take videos of the process, and then get them posted to YouTube. Have this linked to your article, and whatnot. Internet is great, I love it, but I believe that human to human connection is so powerful and meaningful.

Anybody wanna volunteer to make a pdf that could be printed?
