Jeavons biointensive raised bed gardening

Jeavon's raised bed

  • Raised beds - 3 to 5 ft wide, any length, narrow paths between beds
  • Double digging to aerate soil and allow roots to penetrate deeper
  • Enrich soil with compost & organic material (focus on growing the soil, not the crops) (garden is a closed system)
  • Start seedlings inside and transplant to beds
  • Use additional compost for nutrients
  • geometric spacing of plants to create micro climate
