Talk at Crewkerne on No Dig Gardening for more harvests, fewer weeds, 14th March 2019

14th March 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Charles Dowding talk

An illustrated, one hour 20 minute talk on how to have healthy soil and enjoy easier harvests, followed by questions and answers.

Charles explains 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.

You see 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.

Tickets will cost £7.50 and include a glass of wine.
