RETURN To About Page

This is a help page for beginners who want to start a backyard permaculture garden. The basic scenario we're using is that it will be a 4' x 8' plot, raised bed, and in Chicago. What is easiest and least expensive way to get started? And, where do I go in Chicago to get everything I need? What about soil testing, bed framing, top soil, drip lines, a composter, and a rain barrel?

General How-To's
