By Daniel Mays
In this comprehensive guide to successful no-till vegetable farming, author Daniel Mays outlines the environmental, social, and economic benefits of his system. The book offers a whole-farm plan including sections on bed flipping, planting, dealing with weeds, establishing beds, and cover cropping, all without tilling.
The methods described are designed for implementation at the human scale, relying primarily on human power, with minimal use of machinery. To complete the big picture it presents streamlined planning and record-keeping tools as well as marketing strategies, and outlines community engagement programs like CSA, food justice initiatives, and on-farm education.
