Learn how to build a No Dig Garden

Why dig a garden the conventional way? When there are millions of worms willing to do the work for you.

The bed will break down into a nutrient-rich soil, so all you will need to do is top it up with fresh layers of organic matter.

No Dig Gardening will give you and your family:

Organic fresh vegetables in season

You will be able to eat Organic fresh vegetables daily.

In working with nature and not against it, you will also gain the true food value your body needs to stay healthy. 

Eating this way will give you all the nutrients, vitamins, trace elements and fiber you and your family requires to replenish your ‘organic’ bodies.

You can also deter garden pests the natural way by companion planting
Encourage healthy fresh food grown naturally means working with nature and not against it!
