Gardeners know the key to success in any garden is healthy soil, and that requires regular additions of organic matter. A tiller can be a valuable tool for incorporating organic matter and other amendments into soil. To help more garden groups have success with their gardens, the National Gardening Association and the Mantis company have teamed up to award free Mantis Tiller/Cultivators.
Every year 25 worthy community or youth gardening groups from across the country receive an electric or gas-powdered Mantis Tiller/Cultivator. The garden program must be charitable or educational in nature.
