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.
Tuinderij het Lichtveen is run by Chris and Pauline, two former WUR students. The two gardeners use the no-dig method at their agroecological market garden. By disturbing the soil as little as possible, they facilitate the work of the soil ecosystem, which ensures tasty and healthy vegetables.
They grow 100 different varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers on ¼ hectare. Thanks to their well-designed crop plan, they can grow a wide range of vegetables in a relatively small area. During the growing season they sell their vegetables at the market and to local restaurants and shops.
