No Dig Gardening & Raised Beds

Gardeners understand the importance of preserving and building soil health. But one technique that has come under increased scrutiny is tilling or digging the soil. Digging the soil destroys soil microbial life, disrupts the natural flow of water, air and nutrients in the soil and leads to more weeds. Based on my book, The Complete Guide to No Dig Gardening, I’ll talk about different ways to build a healthy and productive garden bed using various no dig techniques. The benefits include healthier soil and plants with less work and inputs. The most popular no dig system is multi-layered beds, but I’ll also talk about topsoil/compost filled beds and deep mulching. I’ll cover various types of raised beds to use for no dig gardening and talk about the benefits and drawbacks of different raised bed materials. Other topics will be converting your bed to no-dig, building a no dig bed on a weedy site, maintaining a no dig garden and protecting plants from animals and pests with raised beds. I’ll also talk about other related techniques such as straw bale gardening, hugelkultur, keyhole beds and polyculture. Whether you’re a beginning veggie, herb and flower gardener or an experienced one, there will be something for everyone in this webinar.
