Lasagna Gardening/Sheet Composting

Built right over existing turf without special tools or great strength, you can create a no-dig, organically rich garden which will have good drainage and be so easy to work that you can plant using your hands. It is economical because the main ingredient is your garden waste.

Additional Information

Lasagna gardens are a type of sheet composting using “green” and “brown” garden waste.  The specifics of construction, ingredients and “cooking” the lasagna gardening will be covered.  The pros and cons of Lasagna Garden construction in the Fall, Spring and Summer will be presented.

This is 30-45 minute program.
