Topic: Permanent Raised Beds the Permaculture Way

Marcia Baudino used skills learned working two summers on an organic farm to transform most of her suburban residential yard into food production. Following Permaculture Principles throughout, her backyard has permanent raised beds to grow annual vegetables and her front yard has an integrated permaculture landscape including approximately 150 fruit bushes. Using food she grows and purchases from local farmers markets, Marcia fills four freezers each season with meals that sustain her family year round. Learn how to build, mulch, plant and maintain raised beds using Permaculture Principles. Companion and succession planting and crop rotation will also be discussed. Plan to enjoy abundant yields of annual vegetables with minimal labor.
