Crescent Farm Workshop: Lasagna Mulching

Located in Crescent Farm, at the LA Aboretum

About This Event

Join Interpretive Horticulturist, John Latsko for a Lasagna Mulching workshop.

Using what you have on hand or can source locally is truly sustainable gardening. This workshop will show you how using cardboard and mulch will build fertile productive soil.

This is also a proven method for removing your lawn and reducing the weed load as you transition into a water wise landscape. There will be a visual presentation and a hands-on activity where you will actually help us to maintain Crescent Farm.

Please bring gloves, drinking water; wear close-toed shoes and a hat.

Space is limited, so advance registration is required.




Meet John Latsko:

As steward of the Crescent, John’s job as an Interpretive Horticulturist is to help you understand what you see at Crescent Farm.  He can answer questions about your own landscape-remake as well as give you suggestions for creating healthy soil and saving water.  He is seriously interested in creating habitat, especially for pollinators, and has ideas for every size garden and landscape.  He can show you our orchard trees and talk about food production in our food-forest vegetable garden


John is an educator who uses the healthy landscape as an ever-emergent curriculum.  With wide-ranging experience across age groups and cultures, he’s also an artist keen on applying his years of art education to help visitors understand the value of design in the landscape. John will also describe the remarkable observations and exciting on-going projects in the Crescent. Come see the Crescent and meet one of its most important cheerleaders!
