I usually make 8'x10'x10" beds, and each takes between 1.5 and 2 cubic yards.
I calculate for 2 c.y. because the stuff invariably settles, so I like to have extra on hand to top off.

Subject: [cg] good community garden book?



I just received funding tobuild a community garden at my school and I have a 
few questions.
1. Is their a good resource book for design the layout of a community 
garden/ or do I just have to peice one together using 3-4 books? (one on 
irrigation, one on plants, one on raised beds, one on fence building)?

2. anyone have estimated cubic yards of compost for each 1000 sqft of new 
beds? I am working on old compacted soil of slightly on the clay side of the 
soil spectrum.
