Born in Crossville, Tennessee, Patricia Lanza learned to garden at her grandmother’s side. Years later, the seeds sown in her childhood blossomed as she created her first lasagna” garden. Pat built that first garden out of necessity– she needed a source of fresh herbs for her country inn, and she needed a way to garden without the laborious digging and tilling of traditional gardening methods.
