What’s the difference between soil and dirt? And why is no-till gardening with a thick layer of mulch so effective? To answer these qeustions we’re back in the “back-to-Eden” style suburban garden we toured earlier this week. This time Lex Case is telling us why he’s so passionate about living soil, and why he thinks deep mulch with wood chips is the easiest and best way to garden for food production. The early spring tour of their garden, with Lex’s wife Erin, is here: I have one more Back to Eden video with this wonderful family in which Erin plants out her cool weather tolerant seedlings, and you can see exactly how she pushes the wood chips aside to plant.
