Going No-Till with Your Garden
Why do we dig? Frequent tilling leads to soil crusting, enhanced erosion, reduced organic matter, degraded soil structure and health. The benefits of tilling a garden are often short-lived and can create more work long term and limit your garden’s potential. We will discuss how to apply the benefits of no-till management to your garden instead! These principles will lead to healthy soil, productive plants, and happy gardeners.
Presented by Dr. Joe Storlien, who received his Ph.D. in Soil Science from Texas A&M University and has been a Professor of Environmental Studies at St. John’s University since 2014. He also serves as a U of MN Extension Master Gardener for Stearns County.
