No Dig Staple Veg

No Dig Staple Veg

 All grown by Andy Pearman on our local regenerative farm using no dig growing methods. 

This weeks staples are:

  • Green beans
  • Red Cabbage
  • Shallots
  • Cucumbers
  • Parsley

We will be releasing a blog on why no-dig growing methods are so good for nature, health and food quality. But as a short explanation for now... When the soil is not ploughed or dug over when planting vegetables and is only minimally disturbed through pulling up veg by hand, the delicate ecosystems in the soil are maintained. This allows the diversity of life in the soil to increase, which further supports life above ground too. Healthy soil contains a broader range of bioavailable nutrients that can be more readily accessed by plants and therefore the animals that eat them. Healthy soil, leads to healthy plants, healthier animals and people.
