In this one-day workshop, people learned about natural gardening methods, including general information about the soil food web and how plants function in natural ecosystems.


Together they built a “Lasagna Garden.”


They also learned how to make compost, step by step, and discovered the various uses for compost.


Peter Ash, our workshop instructor, is certified in Permaculture Design and has been working in agriculture for 40 years. He has managed avocado and citrus groves in San Diego County for 35 years. He is also the original designer of the composting system in Amma’s Amritapuri ashram.
