I've almost filled up my raised bed. It's a sort of three permaculture ideas in one system. It's a wooden sided version of a horsehoe bed which I've heard so much about via Toby Hemenway's "Gaia's Garden" (got to stop reading that awesome book!). It is layered in lasagne style with cardboard at the bottom, the horse manure in the middle and finally topsoil at the top, with an inch finally of compost planned from the localcomposting centre.
truly looks like an easy to maintain garden area..to me..i love when you don't have to bend over much..even someone in a wheelchair and a long handled set of tools might be able to maintain a goodly part of it..so ..way to go
Bloom where you are planted.
