Plot markers

Hi there,
I think that I agree with the thought that most of the plots should be 
tilled, for all of the reasons given before, but I also advocate for 
permanent beds as incentive. I also increase the size of the plot for those 
who show commitment. As far as markers, I let the gardeners in permanent 
plots make their own. Most have chosen to double dig and have put in 
retaining walls of cedar or whathaveyou. I have seen some wonderful fencing 
and edging, stone, brick, twigs, iron work, bed headboards. We are lucky to 
be able to allow an early spring clean up, leaving seed bearing plants for 
the birds and squirrels.
Good luck on what sounds like a wonderful opportunity,
lisa in minneapolis
