My lasagna gardening demonstration from the Home Grown Food Summit is now up for free on YouTube, thanks to my channel members:
Lasagna gardening is one of the best ways to get rid of weeds, build soil fast and start a no-dig garden that can give you many years of productive vegetables.
In this step-by-step no-dig gardening demonstration, you’ll see how much work lasagna gardening takes to set up and you’ll see what can be added to a lasagna garden. From putting cardboard on weeds to adding layers of fertile materials, you’ll see a simple garden take shape, and then get planted. You’ll also learn the pros and cons of this no-dig method, plus see some very interesting additions to the mix that most gardeners have never considered.

I also teach this excellent method as one of many easy composting methods in my book Compost Everything: https://amzn.to/31uSJMe
Ruth Stout wrote about a version of this simple gardening method in her book Gardening Without Work, which you’ll find here: https://amzn.to/2VUdWhD
Patricia Lanza coined the term Lasagna Gardening in her book of the same name, refining the method and adding new layers: https://amzn.to/33IeZUv
More recently, Paul Gautschi of the Back To Eden garden film uses a variant of this method. http://www.backtoedenfilm.com
Finally, I have to say how very pleased I am that Patricia Lanza herself stopped by to leave this comment on my video:
I am honored. Thank you, Patricia. You are appreciated.
