Hügelkultur is a traditional gardening method from Germany and Austria that translates to “mound garden”. It consists of building a mound of woody debris and burying it in soil. Teddy will explain the philosophy, ecological principles, and practical steps to building successful hügelkultur gardens out of landscape debris, from whole trees down to lawn clippings. He will cover basic how-tos, tips and tricks for streamlining the process and some pointers regarding what not to do (i.e., invasives, messy construction, steep slopes, etc.) Never send your brush and leaves to the burn pile or transfer station again!

Teddy Mattson is the owner and operator of Dirtgoat Permaculture, the host of the Dirtgoat Permaculture Podcast, and a City of Belfast homesteader. He studied anthropology and sustainability at the University of Southern Maine where he first learned about permaculture as a strategy for addressing many of today’s most pressing issues concerning the health and well-being of our species and planet
