Already built your raised beds? Then it’s time to start growing in them.
As part of the Growing Together Project, Friends of the Earth Malta has hosted a Crop Growing Workshop Series. This session was run by the Veg Box – a small, organic farm that focuses on growing local and seasonal produce in the most sustainable way possible. They taught us how to choose what we should grow based on the season and type of growing space we have available in our homes. We sowed some seeds and planted seedlings in the raised beds which we made in the previous session. Emanuela from The Veg Box created a very unique layered system for our raised beds to ensure they don’t dry out and constantly have nutrients available to them.
