Reducing tillage in your garden helps preserve soil structure and also reduces the number of weed seeds that germinate each year. This helps improve your soil while also reducing the chore of weeding. At this hands-on class participants will learn a variety of no-dig techniques, including broad forking, lazy beds and using raised beds. The class will take place outdoors so wear your gardening clothes and shoes!
Instructor Jennie Cramer is our Horticulture Program Manager and coordinates our Master Gardener Volunteer Program. She is a former conservation biologist with a passion for organic gardening, regenerative agriculture, natural history and botanical education.
