We had the pleasure of hosting two wonderfully synergistic permaculture apprentice groups this month and they helped us make HUGE progress on our medicinal garden beds!!
The process of building these raised beds begins with gathering brush from the land to form the base. More brush is woven in until the bed has three “walls” making it level with the hillside. Then we layer more brush, leaves, and straw to fill the beds. Topped off with beautiful composted horse manure (from my dad’s horses over the hill) and we are ready to plant!
