Meet the Author

Patricia Lanza was born in Crossville, Tennessee, where she learned lessons about gardening and life from her hardworking grandmother.

Later, with seven children and a career Navy husband to care for, Pat found refuge in gardening. Bountiful harvests fed her family and nourished her soul. After her husband's retirement, a country inn kept Pat busy for another 14 years. During that time, she discovered lasagna gardening, her secret to doing and having it all.

Today, Pat continues to reinvent herself. Lasagna Gardening for Small Spaces reflects Pat's life after the inn and in compact living and gardening spaces. Her latest adventure includes The Potager, a gift shop, cafe, and garden center, in Wurtsboro, New York.
