Nate Haynes will present our Sunday morning GardenTalk "Gardening Like Mother Nature, a No Dig Approach to Gardening
This GardenTalk will be at 9:30 AM on Sunday at the Borough Hall
Gardening Like Mother Nature, a No Dig Approach to Gardening
Nate will cover topics ranging from compost, to microorganisms found in soil, to cover crops, and also discuss the long list of benefits of gardening using this method. I will cover how to start a no dig garden from scratch or how to convert a existing garden into a No Dig one. The main principle to this type of gardening is to focus on the health of your soil. If we put an emphasis on overall soil health and the biology of that system, then we soon learn that growing healthy, nutritious food becomes easier and more enjoyable. I have found No Dig gardening to be one of the most natural ways to garden or even farm, on a larger scale. Join me in an observation and appreciation for Mother Nature, and how we can use what we learn to start a No Dig gardening revolution
Nate Haynes is our local Urban Gardenerg. He has practiced “No Dig” gardening for over five growing seasons and have supplied everything from local restaurants, to neighbors (through a CSA program), to friends and family with fresh, naturally grown produce. Every growing season he has trialed new methods to growing food. His goal has always been to refine every aspect of this process which starts with sowing seeds, growing healthy seedlings, and managing a wide array of crops and their soil fertility needs, and ends with harvesting, packing, and selling produce. The past two years he has consulted for numerous home gardeners and has helped two restaurants start kitchen gardens in an effort to promote a more natural approach to gardening.
