Lasagna garden? Whoa! Sounds cool.

I'm thinking of writing a small proposal of sorts to present to the complex. The worst they can say is no. And that won't spell the end of the world.
The garden I was speaking of isn't at an apartment complex. Actually, it is on a corner of the land owned by the school district office. They weren't using it, so decided to make it a community garden.

There are lots of references on the lasagna garden. It's an easy way to start out, especially if the gardeners are relative novices. Here is one reference: Lasagna Garden - How to Make a Lasagna Garden , but if you google it, you can find more. One advantage is that there isn't any digging. You don't even have to clear the grass from the site, as it will be killed by covering it. The complex might like that. You do need the area to be sunny, I suppose.
