Permaculturist Michael Pilarski talks about his first year hugelkultur diversified planting near Port Townsend, Washington. He also gives a mini-tour of the garden while in the process of mulching with "hogfuel," a 50-50 mix of bark and wood chips. Filmed June 15, 2017.
Permaculturist Michael Pilarski shares how to propagate Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) with branch cuttings. Cuttings about 20" long are taken in late winter and treated with a rooting hormone. Cutting in the video has been in the pot rooting for about two months.

& Bastyr University Medicinal Herb Garden
On Friday, April 21, I had the pleasure to visit the University of Washington Medicinal Herb Garden. It was the warmest day of the year so far for the Puget Sound/Salish Sea. Thousands of people were out enjoying the day, but I only saw one other person looking at the medicinal plants.

Anyone want some black cohosh root? Fresh, dry, or propagation material?
Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) is one of the most well-known and commonly-used medicinal plants native to the US East Coast. If you don’t know about its medicinal uses, there is lots of information on the internet and in herb books.
There is a huge amount of earth repair work going on worldwide. Very seldom will you find news on earth repair topics on mainstream media. Pretty much they only report bad news and much of it is propaganda. You will find local stories on local news, but not much on international news.
