    Hey everybody,
    Greetings from The Netherlands!
    I live in the oldest city in Holland, and we have a fairly big garden... for a small town in The Netherlands. We are with six, 3 teens and a toddler, and we have a Borzoi running around. I am an artist (airbrush, drawing, sowing, music (some instruments, singing) etc) and love lots of different things. Among those are gardening and cooking! And adventures... I am a High Sensitive Person, 'suffering' from High Sensation Seeking too... so never a dull moment!

    In a few months, our first chickens will come, so I started looking around for tips and tricks, and I found the Youtube channel Self Sufficient Me. Since that, I am hooked.
    I learned a lot, even though it's not at all about my side of the world... but I got very keen to get started with something, as long as it makes our little family a little more self sufficient. So, the chickens are coming in July, and some of the garden is going to be turned into raised beds.
    Since our oldest (17 y.o) I suffer from pelvic instability, so my body doesn't work with me the way I would like to. Raised beds will not only be good for plants (we have clay soil here) but also good for me!
    That's what I can think of now...
    If you want to know me better, ask away!

    hugs from Holland,
    Diana

    Diana, I was wondering if qigong would help with your medical condition. It might be worth looking into.

    Hi @myfreakinway Diana and thank you for joining us!

    You bet! Raised beds have helped me heaps also because I find the extra height is easier on my back, neck, and knees.

    All the best with your new chickens! :)
