Lasagna Gardening Workshop
August 19, 2017
Presented by Barb Rider & Lee Clapp, Master Composter/Recyclers of Clark County
Join us and learn an easy, frugal and quick method of creating a raised garden bed you assemble from scratch with organic materials readily available. No tilling or turning required! Don't worry if your soil is clay, rock, sand, grass or weeds - this method goes right over the top of (just about) anything. The classroom portion will include the basics of how it works, what materials to gather and answer typical questions. We’ll put our knowledge to work in the hands-on portion where you and your classmates will build and plant a lasagna garden bed in the Wildlife Botanical Gardens newest "Rain Garden".
Art In The Garden
