RK raised beds

As we have sandy soil on RK you can imagine that the water needed for our plants goes straight down. To halt this Tichafa has made various types of raised beds to determine which type is best. So under our mulch we put 1. nothing, 2. two types of plastic sheets, 3. cardboard. Permaculture Research!
In the coming weeks we hope to install a Bucket Drip Irrigation System from Chapin Livin Waters.
