Phoenix Books and Vermont Italian Cultural Association are proud to present an evening with gardening expert Charlie Nardozzi, featuring his lastest book The Complete Guide to No-Dig Gardening. Charlie will also share his favorite Italian vegetables, greens and herbs to grow.
The Complete Guide to No-Dig Gardening is a warm and friendly, yet science-based, guide where readers learn how to grow a healthy, productive garden without ever turning over the soil.
With the step-by-step instructions in The Complete Guide to No-Dig Gardening, you’ll discover how to build healthy, easy-to-plant garden soil by adding layers of organic matter using one of several different no-dig techniques. Whether you garden in a small, urban backyard or on several acres in the country, this simple approach lets you grow more food and blooms than ever before, and leave the gas-guzzling tiller behind forever. Plus, when you don't disturb the soil, weed seeds stay buried deep where they can't germinate and carbon is kept sequestered in the ground. No-dig gardening techniques also lead to reduced watering needs and a healthy population of beneficial soil microbes that help feed your plants by breaking down organic matter and releasing nutrients.
Welcome oodles of fresh, homegrown veggies, herbs, and flowers into your life—with no back-breaking work required!
