Want a veggie garden with no digging, no watering?

IF YOU hate gardening but love to eat, a no dig, no water garden probably sounds like heaven.

And, even if you're a bit of a green thumb, a garden system that makes veggie growing sweatless is still sure to appeal.

Lennox Heads gardener Ben Adams is the man with the answer to dirty hands, bad backs and sweaty brows gained from toiling over the soil.

His novel Wheel About Vegetable Gardens, http://www.beelineforfreedom.com, are designed using permaculture principles for minimal to no watering, self-managed pest control and high yields.

"Do it right and you should be able to feed yourself out of this garden all year," he said.

The growing systems are made from old wooden palettes.

"I strongly believe in the planet and the re-use philosophy," Mr Adams said.

"They are all re-crafted from recycled untreated timber."

The Wheel Abouts start at $99 and go to $215 if you want it lined with hessian and cardboard and delivered with organic compost, a mix of organic coconut husk and river sand mix, a bottle of worm juice tea and a quarter bail of straw.

"The more people grow, the healthier they get, the happier they are, the more time they have," Mr Adams said.

"When people grow their food, it eliminates plastic packaging, fuel for transportation, and electricity for storage."
