I am an avid gardener and live in eastern NC. I also have rheumatoid arthritis. This method of gardening enables me to continue to do what I love and continue to be productive by gardening. The traditional method of "row planting" was just too labor intensive and causes the RA to flare up which is painful. Square Foot Gardening is not as labor intensive as traditional methods, uses less resources and water! A raised bed is used so there are no weeding chores. A LOT of vegetables are produced in a small space using this method. We have had drought here for the past two summers, but using the Square Food Gardening method of planting, I was still able to have a bountiful harvest. I would highly recommend this method to anyone needing to grow in small spaces and most especially for those like myself with physical limitations or those with limited means.
