How To: Start a No-Dig Garden ... Step by Step

A few weeks ago we blogged an article in the LA Times about No-Dig Gardens. They require less water than traditional gardens and they're an easy way to start a raised bed. You can even start one right over a patch of grass you want to get rid of. Our friend and coworker, Hulda Nelson, tipped us off to the article. Then, last week she started her own no-dig garden and helped us out with some step by step directions.
