Do you have a farmers supply store? Like where they buy bulk seed and fertilizer?

Why do you need peat moss in large quantities? What are you trying to do?

I have seen a farmers supply store between Burlington and Brantford. I'll give them a call.Thanks.
I want to try a Lasagna bed.

For a Lasagna bed, you would be better off with a truckload of compost or top soil.

I second what Judy says. I operate a perennial nursery and might use one to two bags of peat moss in an entire year. I use it only for specific plants. There are better, less expensive, and more environmentally friendly soil conditioners around.

Everything I have read on lasagna garden beds indicates I need to use Peat Moss as one of the layers, if I can get away with top soil I will be much happier.
Thanks ladies for your advise.

Please check out the Soil, Compost & Mulch forum on lasangna bed/interbay mulch/sheet composting. You'll find a lot of practical, economical and environmental friendly ideas there. Peat moss is NOT necessary for building a lasangna bed.

Have fun. :-)

don't forget to use a layer of shredded papers in there too - better there than in the landfill. Almost any office will give you their bags of shredded paper. Also check with coffee shops/restaurants and ask them to save their coffee grounds for another layer - you can use about anything. Hunt around for leaves from last fall and so on - just anything you can get your hands on will be wonderful. Good luck from Michigan!
