Fall Time Raised Bed Preparation with Black Plastic
Instructor: Kees Overgaag grows in 9 greenhouses markets crops through the internet, 2 farmers markets, and a wholesale restaurant account and is able to sell everything he grows.

This workshop demonstrates a method for forming raised beds during the fall when the ground is still workable  more so than early spring. The system warms the soil quicker than with flat fields. The black plastic prevents weeds and erosion, and the drip line laid underneath the plastic keeps the soil moist and microbiology thriving. Workshop covers what equipment is needed to form raised beds and cover with black plastic, methods in spring for transplanting directly into the beds, as well as protocols for fertilizing after the harvest, followed by new plastic or a late crop.
