Very entry level gardening primer, useful for the gardening novice. The Lasagna gimmick is merely: Don't worry about soil, just pile two feet of organic material on top to the ground, wait for it to decompose, and then plant in that.
One useful tip I did glean was encouraging groundhogs to move away by dumping used cat litter down their holes. Even if it doesn't work; just imagine the personal satisfaction gained by doing this.
