 Hugelkultur & Willow Dome

Have you ever heard of a hugelkultur mound or a dome made out of willow trees? At Vine and Fig we are doing both!

Our hugelkultur is composed of a base of large, decaying logs & stumps covered with brush, twigs, leaves and grass and topped with compost that eventually will become a raised bed for planting.  It is also forming the entryway to our willow dome.

Our dome is constructed of eight small living willow trees planted in a circle.   We are shaping their willow "whips" into a dome-like structure that is the perfect spot for drinking some nice cold tea or reading a book on a hot summer day! Come and check it out!
