Workshop Lichtveen: Introduction to no-dig gardening
This autumn, Tuinderij het Lichtveen is organizing a series of workshops on the themes of no dig gardening and crop planning. How do you set up your own no-dig garden? And how do you create a complete and effective crop plan for your entire growing season? Are you a (amateur) gardener and do you want to give a head start to your garden plans for 2023, sign up for the workshops.
Saturday 12 November | 11-14h | Tuinderij het Lichtveen, Slaagsteeg 20 in Bennekom
Less weeding, water and labour in your home or market garden, whilst at the same time building your soil health?
The no-dig method of gardening is gaining popularity across Europe for exactly these reasons & more! By observing how things work in nature, where there is of course no plough, we can mimic or facilitate certain ecosystem functions to help us grow healthy vegetables and build soil life at the same time.
But how does this work exactly, and how do you go about setting up and managing a no-dig system in your own garden?
In this workshop we walk you through the theory behind the no-dig method and show you how you can start a no-dig garden on a new plot or in your existing space. We’ll go through the various benefits that this can bring, as well as reflecting on potential challenges.
Lunch is also included, with ingredients from our market garden and other local food producers.
- Introduction to No-Dig Gardening – the theory
