Earth movement is a deeply psychologically engaging activity. Be sensitive to external and internal worlds.
Please abide by the desires of neighbors and management.
You may apply tested strategies and try new methods.
Many dimensions of actions have been studied to affect plants, such as 🗣 sound and 💃 movement.
Appreciate Soil Life
Rich soil is both aerated and moist, clumped by strands of mycelia, microscopic hairs of fungal networks.
Feed soil microbes to support plants.
Prepare to Let Go
Leave your garden project ready for the uncertainty that it may be unmaintained or altered by others, animal or human.
Release inner stories to be ever-present with nature’s basic principles and complex expressions.
Hugelkultur is a method of enriching soil and increasing growable surface area by burying wood and decaying matter.
This is a proposal for arranging and burying onsite wood to make terraces to grow food and desirable plants.
I recommend consulting with the nearby resident for preferences on terrace shape and thistle handling.
At the time of this writing, the composts on the Lupin Lodge campus are not ready to be applied on the surface. However in a few nearby trials, buried compost was undisturbed by local animals.
