I think for the most part lasagna. raised bed, no till, square foot and organic gardens are variations of each other.

What do you put on the very top layer if you are going to sow seeds?

I think you're supposed to cut a hole in the newspaper/cardboard to the level of the soil and plant the seed there. At least that's what I've been doing.

I start my seeds in a hobby greenhouse but I think a top dressing of any fine textured material with a PH nearly neutral would work. You want a lot of surface contact with the seeds for germination.

That's what I would do. Or as in the case of carrots, move all the top mulch aside, seed, and then move the mulch back in as the plants grew. Worked for me, anyhow. :)
