No Dig, Wicking Bed Gardens: Is This Possible?

Is it possible to have a no dig, wicking bed garden? Wicking beds are effective when soil is used for planting and work only at a depth of 600 cm: http://www.easygrowvegetables.com/pdf/Wicking%20beds.pdf My beds are 1,000 cm high. In addition, no dig gardens don't use a soil base. How are these apparent contradictions to be overcome in a wicking, no dig garden bed? This is an important question for me this is what I'm doing at Sustainability Street Phillip Bay and have not yet found a satisfactory answer. :-)
