I just read this article: Why We Don’t Till or Dig Here. Aside from the editing, the description of what they do sounds like it was taken from notes from a speech by Paul Kaiser of Singing Frogs Farm in Sebastopol. That farm is around 15 miles from where we are and we see them at local farmers’ markets. I’ve also toured it with a class and done a trial workday there (oddly, that was the same week as I moved out of the neighborhood, so I never called to follow up on working there, lol/cry. plus I got busy with our enterpise project at school). About Singing Frogs Farm’s Farming Model (no-till, heavy compost).
Lots more to say about this over time.

I will take that as a compliment but it’s all my own, i am a big Paul Kaiser fan though. If he would just write a book i would be a happy man, Check out charles Dowding, He is a grower in england doing very similar things but with more of a gardening angle than Paul Kaiser. Nothing new in what paul is doing but he is doing it very well.
I read Dowding’s book and it was so boring!!
