No Dig Gardening in the U.S

My partner, Doris Groves, and I have a small veganic and organic farm in Brooksville, Maine where we grow vegetables and have a small orchard. We teach the no-dig gardening concept to neighbors and our wwoofers. W.W.O.O.F stands for Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms and involves a work trade. We provide room and board and instructions on how to grow food organically in return for them working 3-5 hours a day five days week on our farm.

We also offer four types of lodging. If you are interested in seeing pictures of our farm or learning more about lodging we offer or what we do, please go to www.sweetdogfarm.org
