Raised or sunken, edged or plain, logs or lumber or bricks or whatever — if you are proud of your garden’s permanent beds, please pull those weeds and take some photos to post at our free photo-sharing site! (First-timers to our photo site may want to visit the Help Page.)

 


If your photos are really great, they'll be considered for publication in an upcoming Mother Earth News feature on "Gardening for Keeps."

New to the idea of permanent garden beds? Read this classic written by our editor in chief, Cheryl Long: Build Permanent Beds & Paths.
