Talk at Baltonsborough Village Hall, No dig explained 13th April
April 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£8.50
An illustrated, one hour fifteen minute talk on how to have healthy soil and enjoy easier harvests, followed by questions and answers.
No dig is key to saving time and Charles explains how it works, why it works, how to practice it in different situations.
See how he makes, buys and uses compost of different kinds.
How to clear perennial weeds with mulches, including couch grass and bindweed.
How to maintain a no dig plot, with an annual mulch of compost.
Save time and head-scratching by reducing rotation from four to two or three years. I show the results of a trial into no rotation, same veg for four to five years, so far so good!
How no dig saves you money, because the health and vitality of soil organisms mean you need no fertilisers or other amendments, apart from rare sites with exceptional deficiencies.
You see the photos of the trials Charles runs to compare the effects on growth of dig/no dig, different composts and no rotation.
As well as reducing the time and effort needed to cultivate and weed, no dig has many other benefits, which Charles explains, and he brings a selection of his nine books, signed and for sale.
