Training & Qualifications
I have been growing my own crops in raised beds for the past few years after growing traditional in-ground, rototilled beds for many years before that in both north-eastern and south-eastern locations.
I also spent time working on a CSA (community supported ag) in Maine for a summer, where I was able to learn about greenhouse growing and a bit about hydroponics.
I have done extensive research for my own gardening and through trial and error have found things that work and things that don't.
My own raised beds, now number around 30 and include fruits, veggies, herbs, and spices.
