I found a great movie on large scale no till cover crop farming in the Dakotas. Too bad they still use some non organic fertilizers and kill sprays but that will decrease with time.

You folk have been a big inspiration to me. Since discovering you and permaculture this year I have decided that I will go no till on my plots at Colony Farm next season. Here is a look at the preparing we have been doing. A little history: The north west ends of my plots tend to get very wet in the spring due to the slope. Another issue is the high water table during runoff. This year I dug trenches down to the clay and huglecultured to raise the beds. All summer I grew Buckwheat as a cover crop and lightly turned it into the top soil. This month I have been layering wood chips, manure,cardboard, greens and straw. I will be seeding it with more buckwheat and vetch and planting my garlic, onions and leeks before winter. Thanks everyone.
