Hands-On Lasagna Mulching Workshop

Located in Bamboo Room and Grounds

About This Event

We would like the send a special thanks to Whole Foods Market in Hastings Ranch for their support!

Instructors: Leigh Adams and Rishi Kumar

Whether you are smiling at the title or find yourself intrigued, be sure to clear your schedule for this workshop! From creating natural raised beds just outside your door to covering the back forty, sheet mulch will bring to life extremely beautiful, low-maintenance, low-cost gardens. Using what you have on hand or can source locally is true sustainable gardening. We will have a visual presentation and a hands-on activity where you will actually help us to transform into our new Crescent Farm.

You can also utilize this method for your own green waste to build fertile productive soil. In addition, this is a fabulous method for removing your lawn and reducing the weed load as you transition into a water wise landscape. Bring gloves, a hat, water and wear closed toe shoes. Please BRING whatever cardboard you can find from all your friends. In fact, bring your friends too! This will be a fun party-like community garden activity unlike those you have experienced before. This party may run overtime so keep your schedule open!
