A Beginner's Guide To Easy Box Gardening

Day Date 

Have you been growing food for your family using traditional gardening methods? Perhaps you are new to gardening and not really sure where to start. Or, maybe you're even using some new and exciting methods to grow more food in a smaller space. If you have even a passing interest in growing a bountiful harvest, full of fresh and delicious food, I have something that I want to share with you.

Today I want to talk to you about an incredibly easy gardening technique that anyone can master no matter what level of gardening experience they have. That’s right, box gardening is not some trendy garden fad that will soon pass by, but rather a time tested way to simply grow the most food possible in a very, very small space without tons of back breaking work or time.

I started growing food for my family many years ago in an effort to ensure the quality and guarantee that we always had fresh, local and delicious food available. Growing your own food means it is not only full of flavor but also nutrients.

That’s where I come in.

My name is Susan Patterson. I am a Master Gardener and the author of The Instant Box Garden Miracle, a top-selling book in America.I’ve been growing food to support my entire family (and the families of my family) for well over 20 years!

I believe that times are fragile and having  access to a healthy, controlled, food source is more important than ever. I also know that growing your own food is one of the best and easiest ways to stay healthy and supercharge your immune system.

Step-by-step instructions on how you can build your very own box garden and elevated box garden ( hint: it’s so easy anyone can do it!)

Studies show that the average distance food travels to get to your plate is 1,500 miles; MUCH is lost in this journey. The fewer miles traveled, the better the food will taste and the more nutrients it will contain.

While most big corporations are using genetically modified seed and spraying insane amounts of chemicals on crops, you don’t have to do that at home when you grow your own garden.

If you currently live off store-bought food including fresh fruits and veggies found at your local supermarket, it is likely that you are consuming GMOs and dangerous pesticides and herbicides that can be detrimental to your health. What is worse is that the use of GMOs is also contributing to increased pesticide and herbicide resistance, driving farmers to apply increasing amounts of these chemicals to their crops.

From a health perspective, there is mounting evidence pointing to the toxic side effects that these foods can have. Researchers are finding that consumption of genetically modified foods can lead to reproductive and immunity problems and affect major organs like the liver and kidneys. Because GMOs are relatively new to the food chain, there is much that is not known about the impact they can have on health and this is a huge issue in itself.

Again, this is just one VERY good reason to grow your own food. The fact that box gardening makes it so easy is even better.

Plants that are grown in a box garden are exceedingly high quality, take up less space and use fewer resources than traditional methods. Box gardening techniques make it super simple to grow a ton of fresh and delicious fruits, herbs and vegetables in a very small space making gardening a possibility for apartment dwellers, people with small backyards or even those with a sunroom where they can grow much indoors

As anyone that’s been to a grocery store knows… it’s hard to find non-GMO foods. So much food goes unlabeled… you don’t know what you’re going to get. And the non-GMO food labels just mean that the seller can charge you 5 times what the food is worth. Like me, I don’t doubt you feel robbed every time you pay for organic foods.

This is where growing your own food becomes very important. When you grow food for your family you have no one to trust but yourself, there are no questions that go unanswered as far as how your food was grown, what kinds of seeds were used, who touched it, what kind of chemicals are on it, how far it travelled, etc.

Susan, you just have to write a book and share all your awesome information about box gardening. It is so amazing how you can grow such tasty and beautiful vegetables, fruit and herbs in such a small space. You MUST share your secrets with others!

So many of my friends are like me, they have bad backs or bad knees which makes conventional gardening a chore. I assure you that my ideas around elevated box gardening can bring joy back to everyone who has long put their garden shovels away because of pain and discomfort. I myself can testify to this. After a severe basketball knee injury in college that required surgery, I have now, 30  years later, developed stage 4 osteoarthritis and have torn my meniscus resulting in debilitation, pain and swelling. I am no longer able to crouch down to tend to a conventional garden and this is, along with a desire to make gardening accessible to all, inspired me to write my latest best selling garden book.

Ok… Box Gardens are useful 
(and cool!), but I am new to gardening and not sure where to start!

Darcie, my cousin  told me this:

I love the idea of raising my garden up to a level where I don’t have to crouch down and hurt my back. Your elevated box garden ideas Susan are the best and you must tell everyone about how easy it is for people with bad backs to garden.

Paula, one of my dearest friends told me this:

Don’t let the word hydroponic scare you. Although large-scale growers use this system to grow massive amounts of produce in a short period of time, the system is not limited to commercial agricultural use. You can make your very own hydroponic system at home and get started right away growing tasty produce all year long. 

This system is best for long-term crops that produce a lot of fruit and need a lot of water like tomatoes, cucumbers, and melons.

While the basic concept of hydroponics is growing plants in nutrient solution with or without the use of a soilless medium, many methods have been developed over the years to suit different purposes and availability of resources. 

Inside, you'll find all the tips I've learned over the past 30 years of doing this myself!

You don’t have to be a gardening mastermind to grow your own edible plants — and you don’t even have to have space outside for a garden! In fact, there are lots of great edible plants that can be grown indoors, even in a tiny apartment space. 

Just imagine, all you have to do is wake up in the morning and take a few steps to tend your crops. There are lots of fruits, vegetables, and herbs that can thrive in the smallest of urban spaces, no yard required.

In this book, we’ll teach you all the basics: how to find the right chicken breeds for your family, how to build a coop and how to care for your flock so you have eggs year-round. With the tips and tricks throughout each section, you’ll have a productive backyard coop in no time. Let’s get started!

Container gardening is so much fun! Not only do containers make gardening a possibility for everyone, even those with little space, but they also make great conversation pieces. This is especially true when you use recycled, free or cheap containers. 

Inside I'm going to give you my list of some very cool container ideas that are environmentally friendly and lots to fun to make.
