Comments Off on DIY hugelkultur: how to build raised permaculture garden beds

Although the term “hugelkultur” was coined by German horticulturalists Hans Beba and Herman Andra in the late 1970s, the actual technique has probably been used for thousands of years. Roughly translated into “hill culture”, this method consists of creating raised garden beds by covering rotting wood with compost and soil, and then planting into them. If you think about it, it’s really just recreating the effects of forest floor decomposition—just in one’s own garden space. Learn how to make your own after the jump!

Comments Off on MIT Scientists 3D Print Tiny LEGO-Like Building Blocks for Creating Large Modular Designs

3D printing is all the rage, and designers around the world are competing to see how they can create the biggest, most jaw-dropping stuff. Here at Inhabitat, we’ve featured lots of cool 3D designs , from prosthetic legs to moon rocks . The most successful objects are usually small and relatively compact. Big stuff, like airplanes or entire houses, just doesn’t lend itself to 3D-printing… or does it? A pair of MIT scientists say that the key to 3D-printing larger designs is to build them out of small, uniform blocks, that function just like LEGO  bricks.
