Discover the joy & ease of working with nature

Grow plentiful, healthy food while helping the soil & the planet

My no dig method allows you to enjoy productive and easy growing. You don’t have to spend your gardening time on endless weeding and dealing with slugs. Instead, being outdoors can be a real pleasure!

You’ll produce nutritional foods that are great for your health. And the way you grow will actually benefit your garden’s soil and the environment.

‘No dig is a life-changing way to garden. I’ve fallen in love with my garden again. Thank you!’
Donna Creager

No dig saves space so it can work in any size garden. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or new to growing, I can guide you through every step of the way. No dig is such a revelation. I want to share my knowledge from over 40 years of practice so that everyone can appreciate the beauty of it.

On my site, you can find all the resources you need to get started. You’ll discover how the beauty of no dig starts in the soil and grows through your life.
