This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in earthworks.

Here is a video about hugelkultur.



From the video description:
"http://richsoil.com/hugelkultur/ https://permies.com Hugelkultur is raised garden beds that reduce or eliminate the need for irrigation and fertilizer. This video shows the why and how of this type of raised garden bed.   Hugelkultur can be built by hand or with machinery; urban lots or large acreage farms; "

To get certified for this BB, post pictures or a video (2 minutes or shorter) that demonstrate the following:
  - the creation of a steep/narrow berm
  - at least 15 feet tall
  - 9 feet wide or less
  - needs logs/branches inside to mitigate for angle of repose
  - at least 20 feet long
  - seed immediately
 
Tell me how it all turns out. Here is a tiny ad:
