The French Method
The biointensive or French intensive gardening method is an organic form of gardening/agriculture. It is a form of small plot gardening which uses techniques like double digging raised beds and companion planting.
Soil removed from the latter trench is filled in the first one. The soil in the second trench is loosened up to 24 inches.
