YOU'RE NOT ALONE!

The number one obstacle people face when starting a vegetable garden is simply knowing where to start.

Raised beds can be a great way to make use of a sunny space and grow your own food, but they can also be intimidating. If you've never built a raised bed before, or if you've tried and failed in the past, we want to help.

Raised beds allow you to maximize your growing space, start your growing season sooner when the soil warms up in the spring, and control the soil where you're going to grow your plants.

And the best part? You can place a raised bed anywhere that gets about 8 to 10 hours of sun a day. You can locate one absolutely anywhere—the corner of a patio, a patch of lawn, or even on your driveway.

Tara Nolan is a gardening writer, speaker, and author from Dundas, Ontario. Her first book, the best-selling Raised Bed Revolution: Build It! Fill It! Plant It! Garden Anywhere (Cool Springs Press), was published in 2016. Her latest book, Gardening Your Front Yard: Projects and Ideas for Big & Small Spaces (Cool Springs Press) was published in March 2020. Tara loves planting a mix of food and flowers in her multiple raised beds and perennial gardens. In 2016, Tara appeared on WNED Buffalo’s Garden Wisdom program as an edibles expert.

When she’s not in the garden, this card-carrying member of GardenComm, formerly the Garden Writer’s Association, is on her mountain bike or traveling somewhere to check out public and private gardens. Tara also considers herself to be pretty crafty (meaning creative, not sly), and while you probably aren’t going to learn about her talent with a needle and thread here, you will learn about the amazing (and crafty!) garden creations growing right outside her back door.
