We are proud to announce that Javan Kerby Bernakevitch from Permaculture BC will be stopping in to Kimberley on Friday April 21st to talk hugelkultur.

For those that don’t know – hugelkultur, pronounced hoo-gul-culture is a no-dig raised bed replicating the process of decomposition that occurs on the forest floor. Hugelkultur beds benefit the gardener and the earth by holding moisture, building fertility, and maximizing the surface volume of your garden. They are great way to grow fruit, vegetables and herbs to their max.

Javan is well known for his knowledge of hugelkultur, and learned from Sepp Holzer, an Austrian permaculture expert who further developed this method of growing that is hundreds of years old. Hügelkultur is a German word meaning mound culture or hill culture and that is what the end result looks like – a mound.
