Learn the basics of Square Foot Gardening, the practice of planning small, but intensely planted gardens. Understand how to select a proper site, construct a square foot garden, select the correct amount of plants and learn their proper care. Discuss harvesting and methods to extend the growing season. Benefits include less work, water savings, less weeding, pesticide/herbicide free, small space utilization and accessibility.
