I have been a No Dig Gardener ever since I came across Charles online, for about 5 years.
Having a similar climate (though obviously not the same day by day) as Homeacres, we can benefit from the schedules and advice: it is great receiving the emails.
Our first community garden called "Groland” (our street is called Roland Road), hopes to expand via satellite gardens on small plots shared by our community members. It is part of the idea of growing (green and) local on our island… which is otherwise served by ferries from the mainland and Vancouver Island which is, clearly, not eco-friendly.
This autumn we will add to the 4 small raised beds by creating 2 new long beds using the Lasagne, cardboard and compost method that has worked so very well for us at home. I and my husband have vegetable plots around our home, domestic - not commercial though we do aim to give lots of bounty away each year, we are also on a (9’ shallow) dug well which we manage ourselves.
Water is a big issue where we live, with severe water restrictions every summer for many parts of the island.
