ECI Heritage Gardens Groundbreaking - Nov 25th, 2017

The groundbreaking of the ECI Heritage Gardens at the St. Joseph's Villa in Hampton Bays, NY included the installation of a hugelkultur. The hugelkultur contains logs, sticks, leaves, seaweed, compost, and planted garlic. Pronounced "hoo-gul-culture", the name means 'hill culture' or 'hill mound.' Gradual decay of the organic material in the hugelkultur provides nutrients, heat, and captured rainwater to vegetables and other plantings.
