Talk in Brightling, E. Sussex 10th April

10th April 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£12

An illustrated, one hour 20 minute talk on how to have healthy soil and enjoy easier harvests, followed by questions and answers. The talk is about no dig as the starting point, then covers details of how to maintain a plot in top health, more easily.

I explain how to make, buy and use compost of different kinds.
How to clear perennial weeds with mulches, including couch grass and bindweed.
How to keep your no dig soil healthy and weed free, with an annual mulch of compost, and tips on hoeing + hand weeding.

How to make compost.

You see photos of the trials I run 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 I explain. Plus I bring a selection of my nine books, signed and for sale.

After my talk, the bar will be open until 10.30pm.
