We’re at the end of the series!

This video is from Australia–where the Esther Dean developed her no dig technique, check out this video:

There are lots of different “recipes” for no dig gardens. (In America, many folks refer to them as “lasagna gardens,” a term created by Patricia Lanza.) A couple of years ago I wrote up instructions on building a no dig garden in Central Texas. If you go to this page and scroll down, you’ll see it.

  1. This is the very best way to garden!! And his raised beds in the video look just like mine =) It is easy for even a woman to do and it also keeps the carbons in the soil where they are needed. Thanks for sharing!! xxooxx

  2. Nice! I remember double-digging not so fondly and this seems like it could be a great alternative. I will have to give it a try someday when I have land to farm/garden again.

    • It’s such a simple, brilliant idea. A few years ago, the LA Times had a story on no-dig gardens put on top of concrete. Very cool.
