No-till gardening is a gardening style that does not require the removal of soil for planting. The origins are unclear and may be based on pre-industrial or nineteenth-century farming techniques. Pioneers of this style include Masanobu Fukuoka who started researching this style in 1938, Ruth Stout in the 1940s, and Esther Deans.
