Square Foot Lasagna Gardening!  Raising your organic tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, and melons in a Square Foot Garden is easy and fun for the whole family – the kids love it!  Veggies, greens, herbs, and flowers grow in 1/5th the area, using 1/5th the labor and 1/5th the water of a traditional garden. Combined with the Lasagna Gardening method you have Square Foot Lasagna Gardening, which eliminates turning compost piles.  We carry both best-selling books.

A Straw-Insulated Solar Greenhouse is perfect for Square Foot Lasagna raised bed gardening and growing Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms year ’round.  You can plant your seeds directly in the greenhouse in early Spring, and say goodbye to potting, hardening, and transplanting. You can relax in the greenhouse’s year-round warmth surrounded by flowers, vegetables, fruits, and mushrooms protected from Winter’s cold, storms, sun, and droughts.  Bird mesh remains under the glazing and keeps out birds, deer, rabbits, and squirrels after you roll up the plastic in the warm months. Do-it-yourself plans $6.00

Concerned about global warming? Growing trees and using biochar in your garden sequesters atmospheric CO2.  Biochar is simply wood charcoal that has been “charged” in a compost pile, and is the key to “terra preta”, the permanently richest soil on earth.  Biochar stays in the ground for hundreds or thousands of years and improves soil fertility, tilth, and water retention – perfect for Square Foot Lasagna gardening. Our book  The Biochar Solution by Albert Bates is part historical epic, part practical measures, and the best guide to regreening the planet.
