No-Dig Gardening in the Times

One of my students from the Gardenerd Organic Gardening Series sent me this article that appeared in the LA Times last Thursday.  It thought I would share it with you here.  It’s a great story with how-to instructions for building no-dig soil and raised beds (without borders).  There is also information about a farm exchange program where you can learn a lot by volunteering on a farm., Ramon, for sending this nice tidbit!
