No Dig Gardening

SCRAP conducts a number of environmental workshops for councils, schools, community gardens and others. Here participants utilise recycled plastic to build a (mock-up) no dig garden edging. Then we fill it with layers of cardboard (at the bottom), then compost, straw, worm casting, coir, more compost and finally mulch ready for planting. We can help you to do this type of garden at your home or workplace as well. Contact Peter 0400 982 516 for a free quote.
