Build a Lasagna Garden
Lasagna composting is a method of making compost and building soil by layering organic materials. It is often used for turning a grassy or weedy area into a nutrient rich garden space. The basic idea behind lasagna gardening is the layering of several types of organic materials such as food waste, manure, grass clippings, compost, dried leaves, mulch, etc., right where you plan to plant your garden.
Book a vermicomposting workshop to teach your classroom or community how to build an inexpensive worm composting bin for their home or office. Participants will also be taught how to create additional tiers/layers for their worm for their bin for increased food waste capacity. All supplies and composting worms are included in this workshop.
