growing food in raised beds is EASY. use wood or stone, fill it with a PREMIUM mixture of soil, add worms, build the bed in the sun, compost, bam. you could even put weed mats beneath the soil if you want no weeds.
If anyone needs help with something like this, i'd be glad to help on the weekends, or on weekdays when the sun stays out a bit longer later in the year.
if everyone grew their own veggies, fruit, and herbs in their yard instead of growing grass and mowing it...yeah. then everyone could trade with each other without participating in the process of profit and money. no longer would we identify food with superficial means of attainment. everyone would be healthier, as the moment food like this is plucked, the nutrition/decaying process begins. no need to even refridgerate anymore. also would no longer be participating in oil agriculture.
need help getting started?
