On our DIY page, I offer instructions for how to make a Bountiful Boxes kit yourself instead of paying me to do it. The only payment I ask in return is photos of your garden to show off.
Reader Brad Graham took up the challenge in fall 2014, and from the looks of it did a terrific job. He wrote:
The instructions were clear and everything went swimmingly. I lived in Princeton for a year and would frequent the Whole Earth Center, which is how I was familiar with your site. We just moved to Ardmore, PA (just outside of Philadelphia) and one of my first goals was to put in some gardening space. I'm really excited for the spring time so I can get my hands dirty. Hopefully we don't have another winter like last year. The township I live in offers free leaf compost for residents, which I've used to fill the beds. It took around eight trash cans (8*32=256 gallons) per bed. I planted some fall garlic bulbs back in mid-October, but with this warm weather I'm starting to see a few sprouts, just have to plant them later next year. My next step is to gather some leaves, shred them up, and mulch the beds.
