Here is a nice write up about Intensive Gardening. SFG is a form of intensive gardening

Best introductory article I've read in a long time, camprn. I found the garden layouts a bit difficult to read, but I've saved the entire article in Evernote so I can peruse it more closely.
thanks

Bump

Good article for newer SFG'ers.  SFG is by design Intensive Gardening. In addition to the link to the article above, it is also available in a downloadable PDF that can be saved for future reference:

I wonder what the publication date is? I will read the article more thoroughly when I have a free moment to digest. They are still promoting row planting instead of by-the-square planting.

I noticed that the original article posted by Camprn in Jan 2012 has been reviewed as of 2023. https://www.pubs.ext.vt.edu/426/426-335/426-335.html

Here's an article from Mother Earth. The only thing I really disagree with is their peat moss verses coir argument.
