Lazy Bed Production


Part of the 2019 workshop series for beginning farmers at Fauquier Education Farm.

MAY 30, 2019

Fauquier Education Farm
8428 Meetze Rd. • Warrenton, VA 

This workshop is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is not required.

A thick bed of hay or straw mulch can be one of your most valuable gardening tools. It will help suppress weeds, conserve moisture, increase your soil biodiversity and even add nutrients for future crops. Join us as we talk about using this simple gardening technique that anyone can use, no matter what size garden you have. 

Why fight weeds all summer long when you can keep your soil covered and happy? Enjoy your garden more and work less with this method. They don’t call it a Lazy Bed for nothing!
