Who said growing veg has to be hard work?! There's a well-established way of growing food without digging over the land. It means less hard physical work and also protects and strengthens the soil, as well as reducing weeds. In fact, it even helps soil to store more carbon, helping to tackling climate change. It's a win all round.
A family in Glassonby Beck in Eden enjoys a bumper crop of food using the no-dig method, and they're opening up their private vegetable sites for our Green Build & Sustainable Living Festival!
As well as growing food in their garden, they have a private allotment site. You'll also get to visit the polytunnel and orchard at Moondawn Farm nearby.
This event should be of useful for novice and experienced gardeners.
Meanwhile, if you'd like to find out more about no-dig growing, visit the Charles Dowding website.
