Discover the joy and simplicity of no dig gardening. It frees up so much of your time to be creative with your growing.

Charles explains how you start from a patch of weeds, and how you can plant straight away into newly applied compost. Once your plot is up and running, you need less compost for successful no dig growing, than you do when digging. This is an economical and ecological method - all the carbon stays in your soil.

Charles Dowding has been growing veg in Somerset for nearly 40 years using this method.

'No dig' was long seen as a marginal exercise for slightly left-field people. Now, thanks in no small part to pioneers like Charles, it’s acknowledged as vital for ecological stability.

This fascinating talk, followed by a Q&A, will demystify the No Dig method, and perhaps even inspire you to try it out in your garden.

“Charles has become the guru of no dig gardening. He’s a really good grower, organic, has fabulous produce and we went down to Somerset to see how he does it…. I’m a convert now, I want to dig as little as possible.” Monty Don
