Sheila Schmitz added this to Build a Raised Bed to Elevate Your Garden
A raised garden offers a great way to control the quality of your soil, as you can fill it with a mix of topsoil, planting mix and compost. This deep, rich soil mix will allow you to grow more vegetables than you could in the same square footage of regular garden soil.
Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Rocky Mountain Gardener's August Checklist
Spread compost. Compost is nature’s perfect soil amendment. It loosens clay soils to allow better water and air penetration, and when added to sandy or gravelly soils, compost forms organic aggregates that retain water and nutrients. Use compost as a top dressing around vegetables, flowers, trees and shrubs, working it into the soil lightly. A summertime application of compost will help the soil retain moisture and also stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms. You may use your own compost or purchase Class I compost (which can be used any time of year in any type of soil) from a reliable supplier.

Turn, water, wait, weed: A simplified mantra for prepping a new garden bed.Soil prep. A great garden begins with great soil: Don't skimp on this vital task. The goal of soil preparation and amendment is to create a healthy soil microbial suite — the microflora and microfauna that are essential to breaking down organic material that other soil flora and fauna convert to soluble plant nutrients. (Admittedly, this is an over-simplification of the process. The point is, be good to your soil, and it will be good to you.)Soil prep will depend on what you're planting. Natives and Mediterranean plants. These need little soil prep. Most are adapted to lean soils (low organic content, low nutrients). Trees, shrubs and perennials. Limit soil amendment to the planting hole itself, and leave surrounding soil undisturbed. A heavy layer of mulch around the new plant and adjacent soil will provide what's needed for a healthy soil microbial suite. Annuals and vegetables. Prepare an entire area or bed to provide the organic-rich, well-draining soil that these plants require. New beds: Let's assume you're just getting started and you want to have beds ready for planting now. To prepare a new bed, remove unwanted plant material (weeds, sod, etc.), turn the soil and water thoroughly. Continue watering for at least two weeks, allowing weed seeds to germinate. Yank those weed-lets and you're ready to proceed.How to Win the Weed War

Once you've determined the garden location and pH levels, work amendments into the soil. For a new garden bed, first use a spading fork or rototiller to loosen the soil to about 10 inches deep; this step isn’t necessary for an existing bed. In both new and existing beds, spread organic soil amendments, such as compost or manure, over the existing soil to a depth of 3 to 4 inches. Add in a complete fertilizer and any amendments needed to correct the pH level.See how to build this raised bed garden

1. Sun2. Dirt3. Water4. Seeds or seedlingsIt's really that simple. First pick a spot that gets at least six hours of sun.
Rain or shine, the response to "I'm bored" in my childhood home was, "Go outside and play." Mom believed in fresh air, sunshine and playing with living things — and I owe my love of nature, gardening and being outdoors to her constant prodding. Oh, yes, there were many Saturdays spent weeding, moving rocks and planting flowers — and yes, I hated it. But now I'd kill for a garden to muck around in.The two gardeners in this photo are not related to me, but it seems we share a love of nature.
Liz Durnan added this to 21 Ways to Waste Less at Home
13. Enlist help. Get the whole family involved in the waste-reduction drive. Start them growing food early and being aware of the natural life cycle, and that will become part of the daily routine.See how a family built their own raised planting bed
