“Who-ga-culture.”  Who the what?! German for "mound or hill culture", this ancient agricultural technique is used to construct garden beds from decaying wood debris and other compostable biomass plant materials. The process helps to improve soil fertility, water retention, and soil warming, thus benefiting plants grown on or near such mounds. Come learn the basics of mound cultivation and view established hugaculture mounds in use at Leafhopper Farm.  Please bring your own lunch and dress for the weather!
