Hi Charles, I am new to the no dig method of gardening. After purchasing 30 acres to just find out it is extremely rocky, i discovered your youtube videos and found them encouraging. So the question is I have unlimited supply from a local sawmill of well rotted sawdust, this sawdust is said to be “10 years old and starting to turn back into dirt”. Would this be a good foundation to start a no dig garden on then top it with about 3 inches or so of horse manure compost that i collect from my horses? Thanks Please help!!
Oh Jacob! No i was just saying out of 30 acres its all to rocky to use lol. I’m going to do a no dig garden about 1 acre which is will be a trial garden to see how it goes. If i can get everything to work well i will add to it every year intil i get the size i want for the future.Defiantly not doing a full 30 acre garden lol.
Hi Jacob, I’ve been there and it works…
Many years ago We had a family business making kitchen-ware turned from wood. We composted the shavings and sawdust by throwing it into a fruit cage along with anything else which had grown and was smaller in diameter than a small finger. Over the years the surface height grew by about 5′ taller than the starting point.
I believe that the rasps liked it as they grow, in nature, in boggy slightly acidic land. Anyway, these canes had to be be bent over to keep them inside the fruit cage!
Good luck with the project.
