No Dig Practical Workshop

Discover the beauty of no-dig organic growing at the beautiful site of Hilltown Organics – just outside of Okehampton.
Get hooked on gardening the no-dig way at Hilltown Organics! Find out why back breaking digging is unnecessary and learn why it’s great for the health of the soil. No digging supports a balanced soil life (earthworms, bacteria, fungi, etc) and has many ecological benefits such as reducing water & carbon loss. It also reduces the weed burden of your garden year after year.
Learn how to save time and reap bigger harvests, consider ecological benefits when managing your soil and how you can suppress weeds – year after year.
