At ManureDepot.com: The Layer Mound Recipe

Today we had an excellent turn out at a private workshop in Vero Beach held by Will Tremml at his Intercoastal Farms garden where he and his school friends have been growing food that they donate to a local shelter. We presented the Layer Mound or Lasagna Garden Mound methods of layering in fertile growing beds to improve the soil and the soil food web so that they can grow good vegetables again this year. We had a nice day that finished out with rain so that the handouts from the workshop were left quite soggy.
Here is a link to Adina’s blog to find a printable version of the layer mound recipe handout. Check out the next link to see a listing of articles for more information about this method. No Till No Dig Way
For the page about how to source the materials needed for the mounds in Indian River and St. Lucie Counties email Adina with a request for that document at adina@manuredepot.com

I often hear people say that they worry about the world in the hands of the kids who are growing up today. In Will and his friends, young men and young ladies who came out to work together in the garden, I think our world has some good potential stewards, and I feel more hopeful than worried.
