Lasagna for The Magic Food Bus Community Garden

ANOTHER VIEW - A grassy lawn is not always the best use of the land around a house. Instead, it can be a great place to grow an attractive assortment of flowers, herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Right in the middle of Blue Hill, across from the public library and in front of a beautiful old home now owned by Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital, Healthy Peninsula has its office. For years, we’ve had a demonstration garden in the front yard, using a raised bed system. But raised beds are often water guzzlers, and our wooden beds were falling apart.
