Raised bed with Lettuce

Busy Parent, Do any of these sound familiar?

1. Organic produce is too expensive to buy

You have good intentions to feed your family organic produce, but it is sooo expensive to buy, especially out of season. Never mind trying to find local and organic produce that you can afford.

2. Your kids are fussy about eating vegetables

Your kids tell you that the vegetables you buy don’t taste like anything. And you agree!

3. You have so many excuses for not growing your own food

You have thought about growing your own food but you never do because you think you don’t have the time, space, money or knowledge.

4. Your backyard has poor quality soil

You’ve tried to grow stuff in the ground but it always dies. The sad thing is that the weeds grow fine in the poor quality dirt (you really can’t call it soil!)

5. Your vegetables got eaten by pests

You don’t want to eat a plant-based holed foods diet because of pest damage; it’s supposed to be plant-based whole foods diet!

You will learn exactly how to setup a beautiful raised bed garden in your urban backyard that will provide fresh, healthy vegetables for your family!

Hi, I’m Marc!

I remember the many times standing in the produce aisle at the local grocery store, debating whether I should buy organic food imported from hundreds or even thousands of miles away or buy non-organic food grown closer to home.

Or in some cases I didn’t have a choice and had to buy broccoli from California or peppers from Israel (no kidding!)

And pay the exorbitant prices that make you feel like you are buying gold-encrusted vegetables!

That all changed when I built my raised garden beds and started growing my own vegetables in earnest. Now I can have homegrown produce that is organically grown without having to make compromises on what I buy.

And it has saved our family money as we grow more and more vegetables each year with just a small investment in seeds, fertilizer and water. 

In this eBook I share the steps that I took and that you too can follow to achieve similar results.

Who is this book for?

Families who want to save money by growing their own food

At first glance a raised bed garden looks like it would cost a lot of money to setup. You do need to invest some money to get setup but after that, running costs will be low with a huge payback in fresh, bountiful harvests. And as you grow more you will be able to save seeds and create amazing compost to avoid having to buy these critical supplies.

frequently Asked Questions:

What if I’ve never grown anything before?

It can be quite intimidating to grow something for the first time. However with the info in the book on growing as well as the private FaceBook group where you can ask questions and get help with growing problems, you will do fine. Maybe in your first year or two you will have some failures but even seasoned gardeners will have failures. You just have to have an abundance mindset (taught in the book) to try and be grateful for whatever you are able to grow.

What if I can’t afford to build raised beds?

Look at your budget and see what you are spending your money on. Is it for expensive organic vegetables? Are there luxury expenses in your life that you can reduce your spending on that you can reduce? Establishing a garden that will pay you back for years to come is the best investment of your time and money if you are concerned with the health of your family.

What if I have no woodworking skills or tools?

The lumber for the beds could be cut to length by a lumberyard where you buy your wood. Often they will do a few cuts for free with the rest of the cuts just costing a few cents. Or if you have a woodworking friend they can help you out. Assembling the beds just requires a drill and some screws, which most homeowners should have for other projects around the house. There are step-by-step instructions for building the beds, including lots of photos. And if you really get stuck, you can ask questions in the private Facebook group.

What if I already have an established garden?

You can still fit raised beds into an existing garden. The eBook does cover how to move plants and work around established trees that can’t be moved.

Can’t I just grow in the ground?

You can and many families are successfully doing so. However if your soil is very rocky, contains a lot of clay or is the poor fill left by the contractor when they built your house, you will have problems growing healthy vegetable plants in it. Raised beds allow you to start with a good soil and amend it over time to get the best, healthiest soil for your plants.

Do you cover using palette wood or cheap fence boards to build the raised beds?

No, the raised bed construction that I cover in the eBook is using 2×6 cedar lumber (or equivalent such as redwood, cypress or hemlock). This creates strong, long-lasting attractive beds. You can of course use other materials but you are on your own to design around the thinner material and likely will need to add extra bracing to avoid bowing of the sides. You can also use other materials such as brick, stone or metal but those are not covered in the eBook.

How much time will setting all this up take and how much to maintain?

I do provide a schedule in the eBook that shows you how you can setup your first raised bed garden in about six weeks, including the time it will take your seedlings to grow big enough to transplant into the beds. Most of the raised bed building is planned over two weekends.

Once the garden is established, an hour here and there during the week will be enough. Time-saving techniques are included in the eBook such as setting up automatic watering and cutting down on the need to weed by mulching.

How will I receive the eBook?

This eBook is a digital download in PDF format. 
As soon as you purchase it, I’ll send you an email. The email will have a link for you to click to download the eBook, the companion guide on building the raised bed and all the bonuses.

Can I return this? Is there a refund?

No, I’m unfortunately not able to provide any refunds. Since this is a digital product there is nothing physical to return. 

However if you feel like there is information lacking in the eBook or other aspects of the eBook that you have suggestions and feedback on, you can do so. You will have lifetime access to any updates and new editions of the eBook as they are made.
