Hi I have a tiny plot of ground at a school, which I am very grateful for, but it is about 9 feet by 6 feet. I want to encourage the children I work with to grow fruit, veg, herbs and encourage wildlife. Have been informed by the school that the soil is of very poor quality, because there is a very high level of lime, which makes it hard to grow much in the school grounds. Should I use containers, or a raised bed? I'd be grateful for any advice. Oh it is in a nice sunny spot though!
