Square-Foot Gardening: How to get started

Learn a common-sense method to grow better organic produce in less space, using fewer seeds, less water, and no fertilizer. (And resulting in virtually no weeds!) Invented by Mel Bartholomew, square-foot gardening revolutionized how we think about growing our own food. It eliminates many of the problems of typical vegetable gardening. Steve Bartholomew, Mel's son, joins Wayne Schirner after the workshop to sign copies of All New Square Foot Gardening!
