Why No-Till Gardening

Permaculture is based on three ethical principles:


  • Care for the Earth (good stewardship)
  • Care for the people (humans are part of the landscape)
  • Share the surplus with all living things and limit consumption to that which is sustainable.

No Till Gardening  comes from Permaculture principles: the practice of the where circularity, synergy, biodiversity and integration are the watchwords for the proper functioning of the garden and therefore a good harvest!
