Paul Wheaton talks to Neil Bertrando in Garden of a Thousand Buddhas in Arlee, MT. Paul did some consulting there a while ago, and was a bit disappointed at what they ended up doing. They talk about hugelkultur, and how the steeper, the better. Neil shares all the different plants they planted in the top of the beds, the bottom, and in between. Warm and cool season plants were all planted at the same time. It was planted by the lake, but there is otherwise no irrigation. They gave it some various mulches. At Sepp Holzer week, people got a lot of hands on experience. Neil loved seeing Sepp’s projects greening the desert. They talk about reading the landscape, and observation.
