SFG How to Video
« on: December 09, 2008, 03:21:53 PM »
Here is a great video showing how to build a square foot garden.  It has been talked about before, but after today's show I decided to start a new thread to discuss how even a tiny garden is a start, and what difference it would make if everyone just grew their own lettuce.

Be forewarned that there is a somewhat eccentric lady doing some of the narrating, but don't shut it off until you at least see what Mel is talking about.  He runs you through building the raised garden, filling it with a great type of soil and also how to figure out how many plants to plant.  The statistics he has comparing SFG (dense raised bed planting) vs commercial row farming are pretty impressive.

For anyone interested, here is a way you can grow 16 different plants in a single 4x4 garden.  This could fit on an apartment patio even.
