I am glad that "neat appearence" does not apply to the jungle, forest, etc.
We need a "mind change" to conform to the best gardening practices. That
one tilling is costing the soil organic matter. It destroys the roots that
directs water deeper into the soil. It destroys earth worms. Tilling destroys
their tunnels which, also, carry water deeper into the soil. It exposes the
soil to the Sun.
Read Ruth Stout's two little books. 7,000 people visited her no-till
garden. Even better get her video. She did one thing in her garden that is not
recommended in a community garden!! See the video. It works.
