Lasagna Garden Volunteers Wanted!

Have you heard of Lasagna gardening? It's a revolutionary approach to organic gardening that's as fascinating as it is effective. This innovative method involves creating layers of organic materials right on top of your soil, which break down over time to create a nutrient-rich environment for your plants. Despite its name, you won't be growing lasagna (unfortunately!), but rather cultivating a garden through a clever layering technique.

Lasagna gardening, also known as sheet composting, is not only easy on the gardener but also beneficial for the environment. By recycling yard waste, kitchen scraps, and other organic matter into a layered garden bed, you're essentially creating a self-sustaining ecosystem that fosters healthy plant growth.

What makes it even more appealing is its low maintenance nature. With fewer weeds due to the natural barrier created by layers of newspaper or cardboard, improved water retention from the compost layers, and reduced need for external fertilizers, a Lasagna garden offers a fertile, easy-to-manage plot that any gardener would love.

Curious to see it in action? Visit the BDFRC Lasagna garden at 1742 101st St North Battleford. We've already planted potatoes, onions, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers, with more to come! Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting out, join us on Monday and Friday afternoons between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM to learn how to grow and maintain your own Lasagna Garden. Discover a new way to garden that's both innovative and rewarding!
