Starting a permaculture garden | Hügelkultur
In this episode we begin to sort out our growing needs! We show using Hügelkultur method mounds and sewing many of our seeds.
Hügelkultur is a horticultural technique where a mound constructed from decaying wood debris and other compostable biomass plant materials is later (or immediately) planted as a raised bed. Adopted by permaculture advocates, it is suggested the technique helps to improve soil fertility, water retention, and soil warming, thus benefiting plants grown on or near such mounds.
Follow our real life journey as we renovate a 120 year old off-grid farm.
Renovating the old log cabin (timmerhus), barn, land and building a new tiny cabin.
Our goal is to become self-sufficient on a working farm. We relocated to Jämtland, in the North of Sweden from Scotland. Got a mortgage on this old dry cabin that has no connection to the electrical grid, plumbing/sewerage, heating or mains water.
Join us to see if it works out, or not….
This is 100% reality of living off-grid and setting up a homestead on a low budget.
We face the difficulties of a foreign land, lack of money and no friends and family here to turn to.
No expensive tools or equipment have been used to film or build.
