Learn About Gardening



Our Gardeners are encouraged to use organic gardening techniques.

Gardeners are allowed to select a planting technique of their choosing (e.g., plant directly in dirt, square foot gardening, no-till (lasagna) gardening).

Approximately 75% of the gardeners in Twin Oaks Gardens are currently using no-till gardening techniques. This method has many advantages because it recycles organic materials, reduces the amount of water needed to grow plants, builds healthy soils, minimizes weeds, reduces soil compaction, and plants thrive in this growing medium.
