DW & I are starting a homestead and I plan on building raised beds (soil is poor). It will be a couple of years before we can occupy the place but I would like to start building up the soil. I was thinking of burning the tree debris (from the area we plan to build) in the area that I want the garden and then planting a green manure crop. We have alot of cedar so I was going to use cedar to hold the beds together. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
