We hope you enjoy this month’s articles about a number of Non-Timber Forest Products. Everyone defines NTFPs a little differently – some narrowly, some broadly – and each of our writers brings you her own perspective.

“Who-ga-culture.”  Who the what?! German for "mound or hill culture", this ancient agricultural technique is used to construct garden beds from decaying wood debris and other compostable biomass plant materials. The process helps to improve soil fertility, water retention, and soil warming, thus benefiting plants grown on or near such mounds.
