will be giving an illustrated talk on healthy food
from no dig growing, with massive time savings too.
It’s more about conserving the “heritage” of soil
than of specific plants. He has explored and
shared new ways to garden since 1983, most
notably no dig organic gardening, and since
2003 has developed ways to continuous-crop
salad leaves. He’ll discuss his weed-free, no-dig

in both small and large gardens. He sells produce
from Homeacres, his bio-intensive and no dig garden,
has written nine books on no dig and organic
gardening, writes for national and international
magazines, runs a YouTube channel, appears
on TV and radio including BBC Gardeners’ World,
and teaches extensively at home and abroad.
He’ll be bringing 2020 calendars and some of
his books to sell.
Please note that this is a Wednesday
