Going “No-till” with Your Garden – 2.0

Why do we dig? Frequent tilling leads to soil crusting, enhanced erosion, reduced organic matter, degraded soil structure and health. The benefits of tilling a garden are often short-lived and can create more work long term and limit your garden’s potential. Dr. Joe Storlien will cover the benefits of why we should till less and how to begin your no-till garden journey. He will share his experiences with his no-till garden from the past several years including new methods adopted in 2020.

Dr. Joe Storlien is an avid gardener and a soil scientist by training. He received his Ph.D. in Soil Science from Texas A&M University and is an Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at the College of St. Benedict & St. John’s University. Dr. Storlien loves chatting about gardening, providing service as a Stearns County Master Gardener, and always looks forward to being outside and getting dirty.
