Desert Institute of Gardening ONLINE: Raised Garden Beds
Raised beds are a wonderful way for gardeners to produce the most food is small spaces.
THIS CLASS IS OFFERED ONLINE. YOU WILL RECEIVE THE LINK THE DAY BEFORE THE EVENT.
Gardens come in various shapes and sizes. There are lots of considerations that should be taken into account.
How much area do you have in your yard that can be dedicated to a garden? What do you want to grow, what can be maintained by one person?
What kind of framing materials do you want to use?
For raised bed gardens, the size and shape may also depend on how important it is for the gardener to have easy access to all parts of the garden without compacting the soil by walking on it.
Participants will learn how to:
- Decide on raised bed style, size, materials
- Plan for vertical gardening, incorporating shade or frost covering
- Set up an irrigation system
- Prepare the soil
- Select appropriate plants and install them
- Apply crop rotation methods
