Joey and Holly tells Who influenced them to get into garden?
Mittleider came up with this method in the mid-70’s
Mittleider grow box. The box is basically a raised contained bed with the bottom in contact with regular soil. The substrate used to fill the box is soilless, roughly one-third sand and two-thirds sawdust. The highlights of Dr. Mittleider’s system begin with the idea that crops can be grown in any soil with the proper nutrients introduced and in a closely planted small space. He believed that even a 4-foot Mittleider grow box was sufficient to fulfill much of an individual’s produce needs.
