Ruth Wallen, Nina Karavasiles, and Anne Mudge went on a field trip to Finch Frolic Garden in Fallbrook to understand more about permaculture, and in particular the practice of hugelkultur. Hugelkultur replicates the natural process of decomposition. Tree stumps and branches, as well as yard waste, are covered with soil. As they gradually decompose, they hold water and create fertilizer for new vegetation. Ruth and Nina plan to collaborate for a Dia de los Muertos project at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido next year, using some of this new/old science. Anne was glad to join them to satisfy her curiosity.
