Organoponic Raised Bed gardens - the ultimate growing method outdoors would consist of fertigated (irrigated with fertilizer) raised compost beds, replacing poor soil, poor moisture conditions. Fertilizer could be organic or microbial cultures. This is an integration of John Jeavons' bio-intensive growing with hydroponics, both of which are efficient techniques. Food self-sufficiency with minimum weeding is a byproduct.

Product ecology: if grown in a greenhouse, plastic extrusion of greenhouse glazing is relevant. If the raised beds are outside, then a Hammer Mill is relevant for large-scale compost shredding.
