It says no dig but

- you have to collect cardboard
- you have to mow lots of lawns
- you have to aquire soil/compost mix from somewhere
- you have to find some straw

It all needs sourcing and bringing to the location - so whilst it may
be different work from the hard work of breaking ground digging it is
still effort!

It is called NO DIG not no work.

LOL OK that's true. Although it does involve the use of a digging
implement too.

Isn't this the same as Permaculture?

It's a technique used in Permaculture, but doesn't necessarily involve
any of the other facets of Permaculture such as planting, ethics etc.
