LVSchell donates plot for Food Bank to create Lasagna Garden
Thanks to LVSchell Construction who donated a city plot for us to use for the gardening season. We created a "Lasagna Garden" on the plot. A lasagna garden is a design using no digging or tilling. It is composed of alternating layers of organic material, filled with long term nutrition for your garden soil and plants. Check out our blog for more information.
