Had a fun workshop today teaching at a nature connection school #tarastots. We discovered that rainfall on a hillside can cause erosion and leave plants dehydrated. In order to stop the flow of water and nutrients, we made a depression in the soil called a #swale. The berm below the swale is made up of sticks covered in soil. This is a #hugelkulture mound. The combination of the swale and hugelkulture mound will give the #mulberrytree plenty of moisture, without the need to irrigate. Really impressed with how intelligent and well behaved these children are!!!!!
