January 11, 2019

Never heard of no-dig gardening? You’re not alone, although this way of gardening has been around for decades. Very similar to “sheet gardening” and “lasagne gardening” (the terms are sometimes used interchangeably), no-dig is a way of gardening that leaves the soil undisturbed by cultivating, plowing, tilling, or digging.
