"The Urban Farm Podcast is your connection to the food revolution with twice-weekly conversations with some of the best and most innovative regenerative farmers and home gardeners out there, interviews with up and coming urban growers, and inspiration from healthy-food visionaries around the globe. All of our podcast guests are making a difference to create a better tomorrow and we believe they will inspire you to do the same."

Ep 787 – Paul Wheaton talks about Horticultural Techniques.

In this episode Paul and Greg talk about what is and what isn’t hügelkultur. Greg was pretty sure he knew going in what and how to and was really surprised that he was way off base. Join us as we discover how to build our own 7 foot tall hügelkultur bed and why it is important.

Listen to Episode 787



About the Urban Farm

At Urban Farm, we believe growing your own food creates a happier, healthier life. It makes us feel better and contributes to a healthier planet. Our current food system is broken. The lack of nutrition, proliferation of environmental toxins, and average distance our food travels to our tables, has reduced its nutritional density.

I love Paul's idea to make a Hügelkultur bed shorter...even though it's still 7 feet tall!  It also makes sense to use wood chip mulch on top of the bed and not in it.  I hadn't thought about that!  I enjoyed the podcast and will be visiting Wheaton Labs soon to check out the Hügelkultur in person!

Thank you, Greg, for the great podcast!  Very enjoyable and informative.  I wasn't creating my Hügelkultur correctly either!
