Lasagna Gardening

Lasagna gardening is a no-dig, no-till organic gardening method that results in rich, fluffy soil with very little work from the gardener. The name "lasagna gardening" has nothing to do with what you'll be growing in this garden. It refers to the method of building the garden, which is, essentially, adding layers of organic materials that will “cook down” over time, resulting in rich, fluffy soil that will help your plants thrive. Also known as “sheet composting,” lasagna gardening is great for the environment, because you're using your yard and kitchen waste and essentially composting it in place to make a new garden.

    That's a good question.. It really depends on what you put in. Personally I would use matured compost from my more protected compost bins....Never put meat or fish as part of your kitchen waste and if you do add fruite make sure you always cover with a good layer of browns. I have three bins and they have never been visited by Bears. It is not illegal to compost in our area.
