Kicking around ideas about a new design for providing water to my chickens. The idea is to make the watering device accessible from outside the enclosure.

I'm working on a plan for some hugelkultur beds, and I'm seeking recommendations from anyone who has experience with hugelkultur in New Zealand. I'm curious to learn about the approach you take in your similar climate. Got any advice for me? Thanks!

The 2017 National Permaculture Hui for Permaculture in New Zealand will be held in Kaiwaka, Northland over Anzac Weekend 22nd - 25th.
It will be held in the Kaiwaka Sports Association and the adjacent primary school with an emphasis on camping for accommodation to take advantage of Northland's balmy weather. The Sports association is historically significant as one of 3 venues of the first international Permaculture Conference after Bill Mollison taught a PDC in New Zealand in the mid 80s. It is a hub of community life in Kaiwaka hosting most major events.
