Survival Gardening–Put Lasagna Gardening to Work for You This Fall

Lasagna Gardening, by Patricia Lanza, explains step by step how to use a system of layered mulch materials, like newspaper, leaves, and grass clippings, to help build a nutrient-rich base for healthy gardens.

Building good soil is key to having a good garden and healthy plants. That makes the food from your survival garden even better. You want to give your plants every possible advantage, and thhis book gives you knowledge to do that.

Mulching cuts down the amount of weeds and preserves soil moisture. You work and water less. Soil temperatures aren’t as prone to fluctuations. Mulching adds organic material to the soil and encourages growth of friendly microbial life. You may see earthworms in your soil, too, and that’s a good sign. Healthy soil means you use less fertilizer, or possibly none at all.

  1. You’re absolutely right. I never do my soil prep at the end of the season, and end up cursing, bitching and moaning come spring of every year…

    I’m going to have to remember to do so this year.

  2. Interesting, thank you. I hadn’t thought of putting a newspaper layer on our soil. We do put the contents of our compost bin on our soil (which is basically raw veggie left overs and grass clipping).
