The No Dig Garden is built on top of the ground, so you can start building a vegetable garden anywhere. This is natural organic gardening at its simplest and best. Preparing a vegetable garden of this sort is extremely attractive for those sites that have poor soil or invasive weeds. It's also a great way to build a garden for those that can't, or don't want to, dig a good size vegetable garden! Follow the natural gardening no dig diagram below, but first thing of course is to choose the site. Make sure it is roughly level and ideally most of the area gets at least 5 hours of sun a day.

Over the 4 week course I will be presenting a series of lectures that will help you understand both the Big Issues – in other words – the philosophy behind organic gardening, and the Practicalities – in other words – how to do it. I will guide you through the steps you can take to adopt a chemical-free, sustainable and benevolent way of caring for the organic garden that will be good for your health and that of the environment – while keeping the organic garden looking great. This course is for those of you who really care about the bigger picture. You don’t just want to grow a few veg; but want to change your lifestyle, care for our planet, and truly understand the philosophy and history behind the organic garden and sustainable living.

Soil Association membership offer: Brocton Leys Organic Gardening Courses Location: Brocton, Stafford 10% discount for SA members on organic gardening courses available throughout the seasons for all abilities. Situated on the edge of Cannock Chase, in an Edwardian garden, a small but wide range of organic fruit and vegetables are grown from seed. We rely on our own compost and green manures, but some horse manure comes from a local stable to add nutrients to the soil. All the waste from the garden gets recycled into recreating compost and fertility for the whole garden. All the lessons are conducted on the theory of organic gardening in a conservatory. There are two greenhouses and a polytunnel for wet weather teaching, two acres of lawns, vegetable gardens, herb garden, woodland fruit trees and an old English apple orchard for practical sessions.

Organic vegetable gardening.
With the help of a bit of cover, and carefully selected varieties of seeds, it is possible to grow vegetables and herbs all year round in the United Kingdom, and presumably therefore in other temperate countries that have frosty winters.In my corner of Scotland, away from the sea and up in the hills, there is only one month of the year that can be guaranteed to be frost free and that is July. Most years we cannot grow courgettes or runner beans outside without cover. In our case, experimenting has paid off and we often have more produce in winter than in summer. Last year by the end of winter we were fed up with salad!
