The No Dig Garden with Charles Dowding

The No Dig Garden with Charles Dowding

Join Charles Dowding, acclaimed champion of the No Dig technique and organic growing, as he shares his simple methods for quicker, more efficient gardening.

With ten bestselling books, appearances on BBC Gardener’s World, and a successful YouTube channel with over 47 million views, Charles’ original, weed-free methods give superb results in both small and large spaces. For this live event, Charles will speak about how his desire to grow healthy food – fuelled by worries about the declining nutritional content of food and rising residues of toxic chemicals – led him to seek out and verify his package of skills for successful and nutritious harvests.

Jam-packed with practical advice and pioneering time-saving tips, Charles will show you how a No Dig Garden can save you time, effort, and money, whilst enhancing soil life. From watering and plant care to less weeding, and increased harvests in relation to the time and space given, Charles will demonstrate the value of becoming skilled at propagation and how little space you actually need to grow hundreds of plants at a time. He’ll also explain his new ways of growing and picking salad leaves all year round, multi-sowing vegetables, and suggest best timings for planting, and how to reduce pest damage.

This promises to be a fascinating evening that highlights the connection between soil health, plant health, and human wellbeing.
