Lasagna Composting – July 29th at 5:30PM at Morris Street Garden with Melissa

Come join us at the Morris Street Community Garden and learn about lasagna mulching; a garden technique of composting right in your garden plot. Also known as sheet composting, it is an easy way to use degradable materials to create rich soil at any time of the year! It eliminates the need for turning and transporting compost from pile to plot while enriching the plants and food you are growing. We will spend time talking about the method while also walking through the process in one of the garden plots.
