Samantha Ceci is helping create biodiversity in a monocultured woodlot by switching to hugelkultur! Sam, a Master of Resource and Environmental Management Candidate at Dalhousie University, utilized the German horticulture method to increase biodiversity – and therefore create habitat for wildlife and pollinators, reduce the carbon footprint at the school and generally be a really awesome educational opportunity.
Sam joined The Switch to share how she developed the project and how people around the world can utilize this traditional method. The project was made possible thanks to WWF’s Go Wild School Grant.
